3 Changes to EOC - Reports Score reports may be created in one PDF for all students or one student report at a time.To view ALL STUDENTSTo view INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS
4 Changes to EOC – CREOC constructed response (CR) items moved to local administration (instead of state) in February 2013.EOC testing was the first time Kentucky has tried to blend a state accountability model with a local school grading model. The results of the test must support both grading and accountability.The CR items did not provide feedback and instructional information. EOC CRs did not support local grading due to the amount of time required to score.JCPS issued a District approach to maintain use of the CRs in instruction and formative assessment.·
5 Changes to EOC - crCRs may be administered at a different time than the required multiple-choice sessions.Mid-term exam, final exam, proficiency examsThe Kentucky Board of Education may decide in the future to develop regulatory language to require the inclusion of CRs.
6 Changes to EOC – CRKDE will be monitoring inclusion of CRs in its annual EOC survey.·
