News Release –SRC DATA SPRING 2023
Clinton County students took the Kentucky Summative Assessment (KSA) and Alternate Kentucky Summative Assessment (AKSA) in the Spring of 2023. All the assessments were developed by Kentucky teachers and align with the Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) in each content area.
KSA is the annual summative assessment given in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 to Kentucky public school students. KSA provides content area assessments, including reading and mathematics (grades 3 through 8 and 10), science (grades 4, 7, 11), on-demand writing and editing and mechanics (grades 5, 8, 11), and social studies (grades 5, 8, 11).
These assessments are Kentucky’s measure of student proficiency and progress on the state content standards through an online platform. Each standard establishes goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Questions include multiple choice, critical thinking/problem-solving skills, and extended written response.
As a district, Clinton County Schools understands that education is the foundation for the success of our students and our community. Numerous factors play into that success, which include parent involvement and school. Our children will have to compete against various challenges in an ever-changing job market and world as they grow and develop into productive members of our community.
The KSA is one of the components that helps our district to gauge areas of achievement and areas for improvement. The assessment information contained in this school report data is feedback to our district, its schools, and faculties on how to move forward in providing the best possible education for our students.
As a district, we embrace our obligation to be part of the community’s long-term growth and improvement. Our students are the community’s future. Our schools and faculties are working hard to provide them with tools, knowledge, and skills to make Clinton County the best it can possibly be for the future.
