The Office of Assessment and Accountability (OAA) supports the work of districts and schools in implementing the Kentucky School Testing System. The Division of Assessment Support supplies up-to-date information on regulations, policies and procedures, important assessment dates, manuals and forms, and information for districts and schools on the application of testing data and research to improve instruction. ​

​Current Happenings

  • Allegation Reporting

    ​A violation of 703 KAR 5:080, Administration Code for Kentucky's Assessment Program, or 703 KAR 5070, Inclusion of Special Populations in the State Required Assessment and Accountability Program results in a testing allegation. The link below is intended for District Assessment Coordinators to report allegations of inappropriate testing practices. Passwords are required to access the Web application and can be obtained by contacting your District Web Application Administrator.

  • Assessment and Accountability Resources

    To foster understanding of the new Assessment and Accountability system, the Office of Assessment and Accountability has pulled together resources in one place needed by districts and schools.​

  • 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.

  • Communications

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

  • Meetings and Trainings

    ​The Division of Assessment Implementation provides opportunities for District Assessment Coordinators (DACs), Building Assessment Coordinators (BACs), Directors of Special Education (DoSEs), Professional Development Coordinators and other interested individuals to receive information and practice with score interpretation, data analysis, test administration and the regulations governing Kentucky's Assessment and Accountability Program. ​

  • 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).
