Kentucky Educational Assessment Program 1976. State Summary.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
The major emphasis of the Kentucky Educational Assessment Program is to determine the actual level of performance of Kentucky pupils in relation to the desired levels of performance established in the 1972 report entitled "Goals of Education in Kentucky." The report was published by the Kentucky State Department of Education and contains eight general educational goals for Kentucky students. This volume provides a numbering system for those goals and objectives, and sampling procedures which were used to identify learner needs at the local school district, regional, and statewide levels. The Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills, the Assessment of Career Development, and the Kentucky Quality Education Questionnaire were used to assess general education and occupational competence goals. Percentage profiles for basic skill criteria are included for fourth, eighth and eleventh grade students. Other goals involve human relationships; economic understanding; citizenship; creative, constructive and critical thinking; physical and mental well-being; and cultural appreciation. (Author/JAC)
