2014 Building Report Card

As Kansas schools continue working towards full implementation of the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards (KCCRS), 2014 marked the first year that students transitioned to a new state assessment that addressed the skills currently being taught in the classroom. Kansas launched its pilot of the new state assessment and assessment delivery platform a year in advance of the federal state testing requirement for the purpose of identifying and fixing any system issues and district-level technology compatibility issues. Additionally, the early launch provided the time needed to verify the validity of the new assessment items and provide students the opportunity to interact with the new types of technology-enhanced items prior to the official launch in 2015.

During the early part of the testing window, KSDE’s assessment vendor, the Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation (CETE), reported that the assessment delivery platform had been the target of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, which attempted to shut down the servers and severely impacted the testing environment for many students. The impact of this attack resulted in CETE’s inability to verify the validity of the results for all students. As such, the Kansas State Board of Education, acting on the recommendations of the Kansas Technical Advisory Committee, CETE and Kansas State Department of Education staff and with approval from the United States Department of Education, voted to not release any results of the 2014 state assessment.

While we are not able to provide assessment scores for 2013-14, we are still able to publish academic indicators, including graduation rates, and demographic information. We are pleased to report that graduation rates as a whole have improved for the fifth straight year in a row. This is great news for Kansas and highlights the great work happening in our classrooms.

Thank you for your support as we continue our transition to higher academic standards for Kansas students.
