KY: State Clarifies Testing Plan This Spring, Uses for Data

March 25, 2021

Kentucky officials have clarified guidance for schools and districts on the state’s plan for administering spring assessments this year and using the results to inform instruction, guide supports, and depict pandemic learning loss. Education Commissioner Jason Glass, discussing Kentucky’s assessment plan in light of updated guidance from federal officials, signaled that the state is unlikely to delay tests to the fall or seek the use of local district tests in place of the state standardized assessment after a similar request by Georgia officials was denied by the Education Department.
