Social Studies Field Test and Corresponding Trainings Postponed

The Social Studies Field Test tentatively scheduled for Sept. 14-18 has been postponed. With many districts opening the 2020-2021 school year with Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI), representation of every student demographic group in an in-person field test may not be possible in September. The Office of Assessment and Accountability (OAA) and Pearson are discussing options to have the social studies field test at another time.

OAA would like to extend our gratitude to the school and district staff who had volunteered to participate in the social studies field test. We appreciate your support.

Corresponding training sessions scheduled for Aug. 3, Sept. 1 and Sept. 8 are also postponed. The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) will continue to monitor districts’ plans for the return to in-person instruction. More information for volunteers and other districts who may be identified for participation will be shared when details are available.
