  • Assessment Regulations Training

    ​​​​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.

  • DAC Communications

    ​​​​​​​​​​​The Division of 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.

  • Forms

    ​​The Division of Assessment and Accountability Support (DAAS) has created a number of forms that can be downloaded for use by schools and districts in implementing the state's Assessment and Accountability System.

  • School Report Card

    ​Each year, Kentucky schools publish School Report Cards (SRC) and post them on the Kentucky Department of Education website. Not to be confused with student report cards, School and District Report Cards provide information about each school and district, including test performance, teacher qualifications, student safety, awards, parent involvement and much more. The School and District Report Cards were established by statute KRS 158.6453 (20)​, and regulation 703 KAR 5:140. Additionally, the report card must incorporate the requirements of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

  • SDRR

    ​​​​The Student Data Review and Roster (SDRR) application is designed to assist district personnel in reviewing the accuracy of student assessment information in a timely fashion so that accurate results may be shared with the public as quickly as possible.
