Our End of Course computer based assessments have run into problems that have impacted testers statewide. The entire state is feeling the impact, but we regret the extra stress this puts on our SCHS students and staff.
The technical issues originated on the ACT/Vantage side and created small problems Monday and Tuesday. Today’s impact was more significant, creating problems for Scott County High School students scheduled to test in Biology. Students in the first session of testing were able to complete the first multiple choice section of testing and will be scheduled to take the second section at a later time this week. We have cancelled the 11-1 testing session and those students will also be rescheduled. At this time, we are still planning to test students scheduled for the 1-3 session but are awaiting word from ACT and KDE that the problems have been corrected. We have spoken directly with the Office of Assessment and Accountability in Frankfort and they have assured us they will afford us every opportunity to be sure ALL of our students have a successful testing experience. We remain hopeful and will work to provide the best environment here for our testers.
