"Program of Studies" and College Readiness Standards Alignment
Kentucky Department of Education (NJ1)
In July 2006, Senate Bill 130 was passed by the Kentucky legislature. The bill amended KRS 158.6453 to include the provision that "no later than the 2007-2008 school year, and each year thereafter" the Commonwealth's assessment program shall include a high school readiness examination in grade 8, a college readiness examination in grade 10 and the ACT college admissions and placement examination in grade 11. These three examinations--EXPLORE, PLAN and ACT--comprise the Educational Planning and Assessment System (EPAS). Because of this requirement, many teachers and administrators have requested an EPAS College Readiness Standards (CRS) alignment with Kentucky's curriculum standards to help teachers link instruction and assessment standards. This document includes an alignment of standards between Kentucky's "Program of Studies" (POS) and the EPAS CRS. For each test area, supplemental information, and references are included that may help teachers better understand the expectations of EPAS. (Contains 3 tables.)
