State Assessment Release Information

Yesterday was the official release of test scores. You may or may not have seen much information about this, and there is a reason for that. The state of Kentucky accountability system is undergoing a significant redesign. The proposed system will not be approved until March of 2018 and will not go into effect until the 2018-2019 school year. As a result of this change, school districts are unable to compare scores or rank overall performance like in past years. In the meantime, students are still being assessed in the same areas as previous years, but the focus is on individual student performance versus an accountability index or label. We as a district are analyzing individual student scores to determine student growth and how our GAP groups performed. We will use this information in conjunction with the data from our new benchmark assessment MAP, which students will take 3 times a year to monitor growth on state standards. We will be presenting information at our board meeting on October 18th.
