Feds Allow Kansas To Withold Test Results

KSCB News - September 16, 2014 9:22 pm

Federal education officials have granted a request from Kansas to not release assessment test results that experts say are invalid because of technical problems and cyberattacks.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports only generalized information about how Kansas students did on certain test items will be made public. The decision means parents, teachers and administrators won’t be able to see how specific students, schools or districts performed in math and reading assessments.

Kansas State Board of Education chairwoman Jana Shaver says there were so many problems it was not feasible or fair to release the data.

The Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation at the University of Kansas department administers the tests. It says problems affected up to one-third of this year’s math tests and two-thirds of the English tests.
