  • The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas.
  • The different student groups are identified by the Kansas State Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
  • The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
