Kentucky Senators Looking To Change Style Of Achievement Tests

Kentucky schools would change to multiple choice achievement tests under a bill proposed by some Senate republicans.

The current writing intensive tests would be replaced by nationally normed tests.

Proponents tell the Herald-Leader it would save ten million dollars a year and give teachers 21 more days of instruction time.

House Budget Chairman Harry Moberly opposes the move and says it would “gut the standards” that are in place for students.
