New Kansas Student Assessment Scores Expected

Kansas education officials will soon release scores from a new set of state tests. Those scores could come in lower than some people expect. Marianne Perie is with the Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation at the University of Kansas, which developed the new exams. She says students are taking different tests and they need to get used to the process.
“And just sitting there and taking it for that long is something that they’re learning to do. I always say with a new assessment program, we expect the first year to be the worst data we ever see, and we see a huge amount of improvement in the first three years,” says Perie. 
Last year's testing was plagued by cyberattacks. This year's results could be released next month.
