Testing Updates

New materials for the K-PREP Assessment have recently been released. Some of the new materials include:
  • Student Response Booklet Demographic page
  • Permitted Calculator Use Policy
  • Writer’s Reference Sheets
  • Math Reference Sheet
  • Extended-Response (ER) General Scoring Guides
  • Short-Answer (SA) General Scoring Guides
  • Student Response Spaces for ER and SA

New samplers for reading and mathematics K-PREP items have been posted to the Sample Assessment Items for K-PREP page. They include items and student response space for grades 3 through 8.

In preparation for the 2012 spring assessments, please continue to use the existing 703 KAR 5:070 Inclusion of Special Populations regulation, dated February 12, 2009. The new accommodation changes will be effective for the 2012-13 academic year. We need to continue planning for the revised accommodation procedures for the new school year, particularly how we will ensure students become independent readers and are able to perform the required math computations without the aid of a calculator. If you want more information, I have attached an article from Kentucky Teacher that goes into more detail!
