Board: All Schools Will Be Accredited This Year

KSAL StaffMarch 13, 2014

Problems with a new online system that administers assessment tests prompted the State Education Board to decide that all Kansas public schools will be accredited next year, without considering test results.

Glitches were reported this week when several schools signed on to the system to begin administering math and reading assessment tests. The system, called KITE, was developed by the University of Kansas.

Schools reported problems ranging from students not being able to get onto the system, or the system freezing and not allowing students to finish the tests.

The system was designed to handle more complex test questions than the traditional true-false or multiple-choice questions.

The tests are used to accredit schools and determine qualifications for federal education funding.
