Assessment Blueprint

Published: 4/17/2020 3:47 PM

Senate Bill 1 (2017) calls for the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to implement a process for reviewing all academic standards and aligned assessments with one or two content areas to be reviewed each year, and every six years after that on a rotating basis. To review KDE’s process of the alignment of standards and assessments in reading & writing, mathematics, and social studies that began in July 2019, please review the Assessment Alignment and Review Process in more detail. This is the same process that was used when standards were reviewed and developed beginning in 2017 for the same content areas.

Currently, the KDE is currently waiting on members of the Standards and Assessment Process Review Committee (SAPRC) to be appointed by the Governor to review and determine whether the process was sufficient or not. If found sufficient by the SAPRC, the blueprints and process will be presented to the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) before the process is finalized. Until then, the KDE is releasing draft blueprints as a resource for curricular decisions for schools.


Assessment Alignment and Review Process

Aug. 6 News Release - Public Review and Comment Surveys for Reading/Writing, Mathematics and Social Studies are open from August 6 through September 5, 2019.
