Assessment/Accountability

Published: 6/18/2014 10:16 AM

​Kentucky's Unbridled Learning assessment and accountability system is designed to provide in-depth information about the performance of students, schools, districts and the state as a whole.

​Kentucky’s public school students participate in annual testing, and the results of those tests are included in the state’s accountability system for schools and districts. Find information about specific tests, data and resources here.
 

 

Kentucky's educational reforms are based upon the principle that schools must be held accountable for the progress of their students. Frequent, meaningful testing is required to assess the extent of student progress toward proficiency; accurate, understandable reporting is required so that all stakeholders in Kentucky education have the data needed for making effective decisions concerning school policies, programs and curricula.
