Kansas test results expected soon

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Results from Kansas state assessment tests administered last spring are expected to be released to parents in the next few weeks.

The student test reports will be distributed by school districts, and will show students’ scores and how the scores compare to median scores for each school, district and the state as a whole.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the results are expected to be sent to parents over the next several weeks.

Beth Fultz, assistant director for assessments and accountability for the Kansas Department of Education, says the standards for the new tests were increased, making the assessments more difficult.

Wichita Superintendent John Allison says the bar has been set very high, and while students’ results may not be at the highest level initially, they could get there.
