The Division of Support and Research is charged with supporting the efforts of the District Assessment Coordinators (DACs) and school level personnel as they implement Kentucky’s new assessment and accountability system, Unbridled Learning: College/Career-Ready for All.

From the logistics of testing, to the Administration Code, the interpretation of the Kentucky Assessment results and the application of test results to the improvement of instruction, the Division of Support and Research aids the efforts for all schools to reach proficiency.

Below are e-mails sent from the Communications Branch of the Division of Support and Research in the Office of Assessment and Accountability (OAA) to DACs.

Individual e-mails provide reminders of upcoming events and deadlines, address changes in policy and procedure, answer frequently asked questions, and provide documents and forms to those implementing state assessments in the field, including K-PREP, Alternate K-PREP, EXPLORE, PLAN, ACT, COMPASS and End-of-Course (QualityCore) Assessments.
