Kansas Education Officials to Set New Testing Goals for Students

The Kansas State Board of Education is working to rewrite the rules for evaluating student test scores. Kansas revamped standardized tests last year, and board members are working this summer to update the so-called “cut scores.” Kansas Education Commissioner Randy Watson says those scores help schools and parents determine if students are meeting performance standards.
“Is my child on the path to be ready for a vibrant career or ready for college? The cut scores will take all those things into consideration,” says Watson.
Watson says if the target scores are set too high or too low they won’t be good tools for evaluating student performance. Board of Education members will continue discussing the topic this month with the goal of finalizing new scores sometime this summer.
