Assessment Q&A

Hello Kansas educators! We have been receiving countless emails with questions around the KITE system and thought we would throw together a sort of Q&A email to hopefully help clarify a few items. First let us start by informing you that CETE serves many states across the country with KITE and therefore many of the resources they have available are general in nature. They are in the process of creating a section on their website which we help clarify procedures for Kansas. In the meantime we will try and help sort through the process. We might also add CETE is currently working on the 2014 Examiners Manual which will be the best resource for Kansas schools to reference. Once this document is available to the field we will notify everyone via the listserv. Click on the question for the answer.
