Assessments

K-PREP

Published: 4/22/2019 12:25 PM

Kentucky’s new assessment and accountability system is under development. More details will be forthcoming.

Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), enacted in the 2009 Kentucky General Assembly, required a new public school assessment program beginning in the 2011-12 school year. These assessments were collectively named the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests.

The assessment for grades 3-8 is a criterion-referenced test (CRT)  consisting of multiple-choice (MC), extended-response (ER) and short answer (SA) items. K-PREP is based on Kentucky Academic Standards and customized for Kentucky.

NCS Pearson has been awarded the contract to provide all assessments for grades 3-8 and writing on-demand at high school.

NCS Pearson currently provides large-scale assessment services in more than 25 states and for the U.S. Department of Education.
