Testing Board of Review

Published: 6/23/2020 10:43 AM

Purpose: The Testing Board of Review (TBR) and the Commissioner of Education work together to ensure the integrity of all state-required assessments is maintained. Pursuant to 703 KAR 5:080, the TBR is charged with providing recommendations to the Commissioner of Education regarding testing allegations made to the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE).

The KDE receives more than 300 allegations of inappropriate testing practices each year that are reviewed by the Testing Allegations Coordinator and other KDE investigators. The Board reviews the results of those investigations. The Board then makes recommendations to the Commissioner of Education for disposition of each allegation.

The Testing Board is scheduled to meet monthly for approximately two hours, beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET in Conference Room 516, 5th Floor, 300 Sower Boulevard, Frankfort, KY. 


The Testing Board of Review has canceled its regular monthly meeting scheduled for May 20, 2020. The next meeting is scheduled for June 17 at 1:30 p.m. ET at the Kentucky Department of Education in Room 517.


Membership: The Commissioner of Education appoints the Board members. There is no required number of board members per the regulation, however, the board typically has five members to represent various divisions within KDE. In order to maintain the independence of the board, members do not include persons whose job duties include either investigation of allegations or those who work in the assessment and accountability area of KDE. Each Board member receives the Administration Code Training.
