The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) is seeking applicants to complete the process of setting standards for the science assessments in grades 4 and 7. The three-day face-to-face meetings will be held July 17-19 in central Kentucky.
The purpose of these meetings is to establish performance level descriptors and delineate Novice, Apprentice, Proficient and Distinguished performance guidelines for the operational grades 4 and 7 science assessments.
Each standards setting committee will consist of science teachers, educators of exceptional children, administrators and curriculum/instructional specialists.
Participants will be compensated or their districts will be reimbursed for the cost of substitute teachers.
