(FRANKFORT, KY) – The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) is seeking feedback on draft assessment blueprints for reading and writing, mathematics and social studies. This is the second opportunity for public review and comment on the assessment blueprints.

Senate Bill 1 (2017) calls for KDE to implement a process for reviewing all academic standards and aligned assessments with one or two content areas to be reviewed each year, and every six years after that on a rotating basis.

Beginning Aug. 6 and continuing through Sept. 5, people may review the draft blueprints and share feedback and suggestions for use in the review process for the new assessments. Feedback and comments will be thoughtfully considered and any needed revisions made before bringing forward a final set of proposed blueprints for further comment and eventual approval by the Kentucky Board of Education.

Interested individuals can view the assessment blueprints and provide feedback by clicking reading and writing, mathematics and social studies. Due to the amount of text within the survey, it is recommended that surveys be completed on a full-size computer or laptop.
