Grades 4-8 will have MC, short answer and open/extended response. Grade 3 will have only MC and short answer.
End of Course will likely have MC and constructed response.
On Demand format will use prompts and Editing and Mechanics portion may have MC and short answers.
According to KRS 158.6453 the CRT components will be composed of CR/MC items and NRT components shall be MC items.
