General Description of the Tests

These assessments are collectively named the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests. ​The new assessment for grades 3-8 is a blended model built with norm-referenced test (NRT) and criterion-referenced test (CRT) items which consist of multiple-choice (mc), extended-response (er) and short answer (sa) items.

The NRT is a purchased test with national norms and the CRT portion is customized for Kentucky. NCS Pearson has been awarded the contract to provide all assessments for grades 3-8 and writing on-demand at high school. NCS Pearson currently provides large-scale assessment services in more than 25 states and for the U.S. Department of Education.
