About the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress: K-PREP tests are blended norm-referenced and criterion-referenced measures that provide national percentiles and student performance levels of novice, apprentice, proficient and distinguished. Tests are given in grades 3-8 in reading, mathematics, science, social studies and writing. On-demand writing is also administered in grades 10 and 11. The number of students listed in the Assessment results reflects students tested at a school. This number may differ from the Accountability tab. Schools must test all students, but are only accountable for students enrolled a full academic year (100 days).

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
