(Aligned to KAS)
With the 2009 implementation of Senate Bill 1 (SB1) requiring new assessment standards for English/Language Arts and Mathematics for the general assessment, new statements aligned to the standards were also required for the Alternate Assessment.
Low Incidence Consultants and KDE Content Experts narrowed the Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) to 10 standards to release into the field for teachers and administrators to select the top 6. KDE in conjunction with the Low Incidence Consultants worked to modify the language of the six standards selected to create less depth and breath.
Reading, mathematics, writing and science are based upon the Kentucky Academic Standards, while social studies is based upon Core Content 4.1.
