​​​​​In accordance with US Department of Education (USED) guidance, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) will administer summative and other state assessments for school year 2022-2023


The 2022-2023 school year will include full implementation of the accountability system.The accountability system's overall performance for each district, school and student demographic group determined by the state indicators shall combine current year performance, called "Status" and improvement from prior year to current year, called "Change." ​


For all students as a group and separately for student demographic groups, districts' and schools' overall performance and status and change for each indicator will be displayed on an online dashboard of system results (School Report Card) with color-coded performance levels beginning in the fall of 2023. (Status levels will be reported as very high, high, medium, very low, low; Change levels will be reported as increased significantly, increased, maintained, decreased, decreased significantly)
Overall performance ratings will be reported using a color rating system to communicate performance of schools. Color ratings will include five performance levels from highest to lowest, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red.

To foster understanding of the 2021-2022 assessment data reporting, the Office of Assessment and Accountability (OAA) has gathered resources in one place.

Many of these resources can be found on various pages throughout the KDE website. OAA has attempted to make a single place to begin to answer the assessment data and participation questions that may arise from the public data release. These resources include word documents, PDFs, links to vendor sites, videos and PowerPoints.
