KEEP Training Information

KEEP Guided Practice Portal

    • The KSDE KEEP Guided Practice is a step-by-step trainee-paced practice.  The "Demonstration" view in the portal is a hands-off "watch it happen" version.
    • The training portal is http://training.ksde.org/vimago/keep/trainingportal/web/index.htm
    • Both Guided Practice and Demonstration mode works on both Mac and Windows.
    • While both modes work on iPads, you may find the Guided Practice frustrating as you cannot use the native pinch zoom and when the keyboard comes up to enter text it covers the area of the screen instructing you what text to enter.  You may find the Demonstration mode more beneficial on iPads

To schedule a training, please see the KEEP Training Dates Page. Look at all of the open dates and information required. Then send an email requesting a date and including all of the necessary information to schedule your training. Please include the name of the trainer that you will be scheduling. Send your email to kdempewolf@ksde.org

For training materials for previously trainings, please see the Trainings/Meetings Archive tab. 
An updated KEEP User Guide for 2014-2015 will be available in September 2014. 

The KEEP Construct and Component Graphic(PDF) shows the rubric constructs and components for teachers, building leaders, and district leaders.
