Last week, the Kentucky Department of Education released the names of people who will serve on its CATS Task Force to review Kentucky’s school assessment program. Before these people meet, they need to get smart on the inflated grading in CATS discussed in the videos linked below. If the Task Force fails to recommend changes to the CATS’ inflated scoring scheme as discussed in these videos, their work will be an automatic failure.
You can easily learn what’s wrong with CATS scoring by looking at these You Tubes. For the best understanding, watch all four videos in order, but if time is short, start with Part 3 and continue to view Part 4. Just click the links to start each part.
