Assessment Support

Assessment and Accountability Resources

Published: 3/28/2022 1:27 PM


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 2021-2022.


While the U.S. Department of Education (USED) waived the 2020-2021 accountability requirements, KDE will continue to support schools previously identified for Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) and Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI) in the 2021-2022 school year. School identification will resume in the fall of 2022.

Although there were unusual circumstances in the 2020-2021 school year, the KDE continues to prepare for assessments, accountability and reporting in the 2021-2022 school year. 


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted most aspects of education in the 2020-2021 school year. As a result, the process for student test taking has changed and the results from this year’s tests may look very different than previous school years. 

To foster understanding of the 2020-2021 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 which may arise from the public data release. These resources include word documents, PDFs, links to vendor sites, videos and PowerPoints.
