Kentucky Common Core Test Scores Released!
Education Week - over 4 years
So we've provided you with a lot of election coverage here at Education Week, but this week perhaps the biggest piece of K-12 news comes from Kentucky, when the first set of results from tests based on the Common Core State Standards have been released. You can read my story on the results here. The highlight is that proficiency rates on the K-PREP tests for grades 3-8 dropped by roughly a third from their 2011 levels, although in middle school math the plunge reached 45 percent. But when I spoke to him, state Education Commissioner Terry Holliday said that Bluegrass State students actually beat the predictions for how well they would score, and attributed that relative success to the good teaching in classrooms this year, the first the common standards were implemented in Kentucky. Is Holliday right? Or are the tests (which are not the common core tests being developed by the two state consortia for 2014-15) not really as rigorous as they should be? Both points of view ...

New School Year: New Standards, New Fears
Education Week - over 4 years
More than two years after the Common Core State Standards were introduced, we're finally beginning to see more widespread coverage in the mainstream news media. Stories like this one, from Paragould, Ark., and this one, from the Ravena News-Herald in upstate New York, try to bring to the general public a sense of the new academic expectations facing their children. They're pretty typical of what I've been seeing lately. The difference is that I'm seeing much of anything at all. For the last couple of years, there has been relatively little published in newspapers that cater to a broader population than the education world. Now that the standards are actually being implemented in schools, it's predictable that local newspapers will hear about—and write about—what they will actually look like in the classroom. They're also writing, of course, about some of the challenges that lie ahead in implementing the standards. This story, from the Arizona Daily Sun, was sparked ...

News briefs from around Kentucky at 2:58 a.m. EDT
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
News briefs from around Kentucky at 2:58 a.m. EDT (AP) — Kentucky's top education official said Tuesday although he's praising new assessments that college testing giant ACT Inc., has developed for primary and secondary schools, it doesn't mean the state already decided to spend millions to buy them. A national news release from ACT, one of the nation's most influential education testing organizations, promoted their upcoming tests and quoted Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday, who is in charge of implementing a massive reform of Kentucky education that relies on standardized testing to measure progress. Holliday said Tuesday his quote in the promotional release didn't mean the state had already planned to purchase the new assessments. The state spends $1.3 million a year on tests developed by Iowa-based ACT, best known for its standardized college entrance exam but also a developer of tests used in middle school to track student progress. The laws ...

Jailed Breathitt Schools Superintendent Resigns
Lex 18 - almost 5 years
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Breathitt County schools superintendent in jail on federal vote-buying charges has resigned his position. The Lexington Herald Leader reports (http://bit.ly/KxK4gC) the Department of Education received a letter of resignation on Friday from Superintendent Arch Turner. Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday had asked Turner to resign last month. Turner had not responded by Tuesday, when a judge revoked his bond on several federal charges and ordered him jailed. U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Wier concluded that Turner had had improper contact with another man charged in the case. Wier said Turner was likely to try to influence witnesses if left free. Turner could face up to 20 years if convicted. His trial is scheduled to begin July 30.

Assessment Consortia: Kentucky Makes Its Choice
Education Week - almost 5 years
It's been pretty quiet for a while in the world of assessment-consortium membership. But if you're wonky enough to enjoy following who's signed up with which testing consortium, you'll be interested to know that Kentucky has made its choice: PARCC. Kentucky has been one of the few remaining polygamous states—states that have been participating in both consortia, without a commitment. But quietly, in late February, it decided to withdraw from the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium and belong only to the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). This decision was made by Commissioner Terry Holliday, in consultation with department of education staff, according to department spokeswoman Lisa Gross. Now that it belongs only to one consortium, Kentucky may become a "governing" state, able to have a voice in test design and other important matters. States that belong to both consortia—"participating states"—may get involved in discussions, ...

At least one spectator thought the point was over. The ballboy kneeling at the side of the net watched as Bettina Bunge hammered a cross-court backhand that carried wide and apparently out of Martina Navratilova's reach. But the ballboy should have known that Miss Navratilova rarely concedes a point and will follow a ball to the ends of a tennis
