The Commonwealth of Kentucky has several regulations which govern the administration of Kentucky's Assessment and Accountability Program. These regulations are supplemented with guides and manuals specific to each assessment.
Annually, those persons who administer any part of a state assessment must complete training sessions regarding the assessments. The main regulations are the Administration Code for Kentucky's Educational Assessment Program and Inclusion of Special Populations in the State-Required Assessment and Accountability.
Training concerning these regulations is updated annually to reflect regulation revisions and clarification of materials.
All individuals participating in the administration of the testing program shall comply with the Administration Code for Kentucky's Educational Assessment Program and Inclusion of Special Populations.
