Jackson County students are preparing to participate in the state required end of year testing. The Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) is a blended assessment with both a norm-referenced component and a criterion-referenced component.  Jackson County students in grades 3-8 will be taking the state required K-PREP assessments in Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, and On-Demand Writing.  Students in grades 10-11 will take the On-Demand Writing Test.  In addition, high school students completing English 10, Algebra II, Biology, and U.S. History will take an End-of-Course Assessment.  The End of Course Assessment will count for 20% of the student’s final course grade.
