In just a few days students across Knox County and Kentucky will be taking the annual K-PREP assessment. For our students, the testing window begins Monday, May 9 and continues through May 20, with the week of May 16 being make-up days.
K-PREP for grades 3-8 is a blended model built with norm-referenced test (NRT) and criterion-referenced test (CRT) items which consist of multiple-choice, extended-response and short answer items.
The chart below shows the K-PREP assessment and other assessments that your child might have taken during the school year. For K-PREP, results will not be available until the fall. For others, results may be available now if you contact your child’s school.
Just like other tests your child completes in school, it is always beneficial for them to review materials and get a good night’s sleep prior to the testing day. Below are some test taking success tips that you students and families should practice not just at test time but throughout the school year:
Good luck students on the 2016 K-PREP!
