What is the K-PREP (Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress) Test?
Kentucky public school state-wide accountability system depends on the testing of each and every student. Testing all students helps the state and local districts ensure that schools are serving all students and that gaps in categories of students are identified, addressed, and closed. A component of the Kentucky Testing System, the K-PREP uses a blended model of norm-referenced test items and criterion-referenced test items and contains multiple-choice, extended-response, and short answer items for students in grades 3 - 8. Students in grades 10 and 11 participate in Writing on Demand. More information to include the amount of time students will spend taking the assessments along with the tentative testing schedule may be found on the KDE website.
