Alternate K-PREP Transition Attainment Record Trainings 
The Transition Attainment Record (TAR) assessment is designed to provide students with severe cognitive disabilities access to modified standards aligned to Kentucky's Academic Standards. The TAR meets the testing requirements for ACT (grade 11).
 
The TAR is a checklist based assessment which evaluates the student's readiness in reading/writing, mathematics and science.
 
The TAR represents the college readiness benchmark at grade 11 for Alternate Assessment students.
