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.
Previous Testing Systems consisted of the K-PREP, The ACT, ACT Explore, ACT Plan, ACT WorkKeys, KOSSA, ASVAB, KYOTE, ACT Compass, Kentucky Core Content Test (KCCT), and more, including nonacademic components. Results from these assessments are available through data sets in Kentucky's School Report Card.
Prior to 2010-2011, schools and districts received the Interim Performance Reports (IPR), which provided detailed information and performance results. Electronic files are available containing the data that appears on the IPR. Data from 2005-2006 through 2010-2011 are available through these data sets.
