Duplicate student accounts
Duplicate Student Accounts

  • KDE and ACT are working collaboratively to purge the system of duplicate accounts.

  • The target is to have this work done this fall.

  • After this effort, school staff should review school lists to verify quality of work. Please review BAC e-mails for additional information.


Removal of graduates from vantage
Removal of Graduates from Vantage

  • New Policy: Graduates will be removed from the Vantage system by ACT in December following graduation dates.

  • Allows school staff time to print Individual Student Reports.

  • ACT and KDE will work together to determine when this effort will be complete. Please review the BAC e-mails for additional information about this effort.


Online stress test
Online Stress Test

The purpose of this assessment is to provide Kentucky educators assurance the online system will work with a large number of students in the system at once. ACT must prove the system has been fixed; if it cannot, the state will likely look for a different testing vendor for the 2014-15 school year. District Assessment Coordinators (DACs) will be contacted as more details are developed.
