Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holiday just posted a 6-page updated discussion of the working proposal for Kentucky’s new school assessment program as of March 11, 2011 here.
The commissioner also mentions this in his blog, but the link to the article was broken there. I posted a comment to that blog for those who try to find the article without coming to the Bluegrass Policy Blog.
I plan to be at a meeting of the School Curriculum Assessment and Accountability Committee on Tuesday where this will be discussed. I’ll provide a further update after the education community makes their comments.
Overall, the proposal is starting to shape up pretty well, integrating a number of diverse assessment programs, graduation rates, and audit team actions into a diversified examination of school progress.
There is only one area where I have some concerns, but I think I have an idea of how to handle that. More after Tuesday’s meeting.
