Data from the Unbridled Learning Assessment and Accountability System will be made public on Friday, October 3, however it will be available to media under an embargo on Wednesday, October 1. Districts may also choose to share results and comments about the data with local media on October 1, prior to the public release with the understanding of the embargo.
Explaining the components of the Unbridled Learning system for the 2013-14 release is no easy task. I’ve worked with my District Assessment Coordinator and used info from the Kentucky Department of Education to create a handout to assist with our release in Bowling Green Schools. If you find this document helpful, please feel free to use it in your schools and districts, too.
Also, to help us and the local media with info about what to expect, logistics of the release, and overall understanding of the system, the Kentucky Department of Education Division of Communications hosted a virtual briefing on Thursday, September 25. The webcast is archived here.
We are all in this together, so please comment or share other suggestions of ways to explain or communicate these assessment and accountability results.
Have a great rest of the week!
