Commonwealth Accountability Testing System. 1998-1999 Kentucky Core Content Tests. Briefing Packet. State and Regional Release.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
In 1998 the Kentucky legislature directed the state's Board of Education to redesign the assessment and accountability system. As a result, the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System (CATS) was developed. Because of the major changes in the system, trend lines cannot be drawn to the previous assessment, the Kentucky Instructional Results Information System. This document contains the CATS results for elementary, middle, and high schools for the CATS core content tests. Some comments on student achievement on the various tests are included, highlighting areas of improvement in reading and mathematics. Tables contain the regional and state accountability index scores by content and for elementary, middle, and high school levels. Preliminary score reports are attached for the three school divisions for individual schools and districts. (Contains six tables and three lengthy charts of school and district results.) (SLD)
