KYOTE (Kentucky Online Testing Program) FY17 & FY18

  • Eakin, Paul (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


Although all Kentucky high school juniors take the ACT, only half of them successfully establish college readiness in math or English in the process. The Kyote program affords students a second chance establish both English and Mathematics college readiness in their senior year through a series of online exams that are scheduled and administered in their schools by their teachers. The exams are developed by teams of Kentucky college, university, and school faculty. Over 30,000 mathematics and 8,000 reading, and 5000 writing exams are expected to be administered in AY 2016-17. The math and reading exams are machine graded while the writing exams are hand-graded by over 500 Kentucky English teachers. The program operates entirely on UK technology. As part of the outreach program of the UK Department of Mathematics, UK provides the technical infrastructure and manages the program operations. This includes administering subawards for the coordination of the writing program (Jessamine County) and psychometric systems design and implementation (UK). The current $60,000 contract with KDE will partially support the project systems development and programing, the writing program coordination, and the psychometric systems design and implementation for the reading program.
