American Diploma Project:Aligning high school standards and assessments with postsecondary and new economy needs

Kentucky P-16 Council Meeting

June 10, 2003


Adp state policy panels l.jpg
ADP State Policy Panels

  • Review Research Findings: Legal, Workplace and Postsecondary (“Gap Analysis”) Studies

  • Consider policy options for meeting ADP goals

    • Use of standards-based assessment data in high school graduation, college admissions/placement and hiring decisions

  • Develop plan for meeting ADP goals and closing gaps between current standards/assessments and postsecondary and employer expectations over time


Summary of gap analysis kentucky ela l.jpg
Summary of Gap Analysis: Kentucky ELA

  • Some essential content missing in core content standards

  • Standards could be more precise

  • Quality and complexity of reading not defined

  • Cognitive challenge of tests doesn’t align to postsecondary expectations

  • Writing assessment might be useful now for placement purposes (scoring guide good)

  • “Proficient” anchors don’t reflect P.S. needs

  • Need analytical writing component


Summary of gap analysis kentucky math l.jpg
Summary of Gap Analysis: KentuckyMath

  • Some content (math-dependent fields) is missing in core content standards

  • Math assessment missing essential algebra II content

  • Cognitive challenge of tests doesn’t align to postsecondary expectations

  • Disconnect between math assessment, core content standards and program of studies


Other issues math and ela l.jpg
Other Issues: Math and ELA

  • Tests do not generate individual scores

  • Scores are not reported by domain and item type
