​The Kentucky School Testing System generates a wealth of data on the performance of schools and districts throughout Kentucky. These data, supplemented by analysis and background information, inform the public on the status of educational reform at all levels. Other reports such as technical manuals and interpretive guides offer information on all of the components of the system and their significance.


  • Dropout Data

    ​The dropout rate is the percent of students that drop out of school in grades seven (7) through twelve (12).

  • Graduation Rate Data (Cohort)

    The Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate data provides an accurate graduation model that follows students from their first year in high school through their expected cohort graduation school year.

  • NAEP

    The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is also known as "the Nation's Report Card".  NAEP has been conducting assessments since 1969 and is the only national assessment of what "America's students know and can do" in various subject areas. NAEP assessments are given at the fourth, eighth, and twelfth grades.
