Assessment Support


Published: 11/27/2018 2:47 PM

The Division Assessment and Accountability Support (DAAS) is charged with supporting the efforts of the District Assessment Coordinators (DACs) and school level personnel as they implement Kentucky’s assessment and accountability system.

From the logistics of testing, to the Administration Code, the interpretation of the Kentucky Assessment results and the application of test results to the improvement of instruction, the DAS aids the efforts for all schools to reach proficiency.

Below are e-mails sent from the Communications Branch of the Division of Assessment Support in the Office of Standards, Assessment and Accountability (OSAA) to DACs.

Individual e-mails provide reminders of upcoming events and deadlines, address changes in policy and procedure, answer frequently asked questions, and provide documents and forms to those implementing state assessments in the field, including K-PREP, Alternate K-PREP, High School Assessments, Dual Credit and more.
