Data Release Resources

Published: 9/27/2016 1:28 PM

To foster understanding of the new Unbridled Learning Assessment and Accountability system, the Office of Assessment and Accountability has pulled together resources in one place needed by districts and schools.​

​Many of these resources can be found on various pages throughout the KDE website. OAA has attempted to make a single place to begin to answer the assessment and accountability questions which will arise from the public data release. These resources include Word documents, PDFs, links to vendor sites, videos and PowerPoints.
