Board Faces Decision On Test Data

KSAL StaffJuly 8, 2014
The chairwoman of the Kansas State Board of Education says it's uncertain when the panel will vote on proposed science standards for public schools.

Kansas State Board of Education members face a decision about how much data to release from statewide math and reading tests after public schools faced problems administering the exams.

The board’s discussion Tuesday was a response to cyberattacks and glitches in the computerized testing system earlier this year.

The Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation at the University of Kansas told the board last month that it should not release data for individual schools and districts. The biggest problems occurred with testing from March 10 to April 10.

The center designed pilot tests aligned with multistate academic standards approved by the board in 2010. The computerized tests moved away from multiple-choice questions and toward open-ended problems.

The state Department of Education typically releases data from testing each fall.
