The Courier-Journal from Louisville, Kentucky (2024)

THE COURIER JOURNAL KENTUCKY DEATHS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1994 B5 multiple choices on tests to assess schools, board rules Associated Press OWENSBORO, Ky. Tests that help determine whether schools are succeeding will no longer have multiple-choice questions, the state school board decided yesterday. Multiple-choice questions have been included since the tests began in 1991, but they did not count toward the score. Department of Education officials said they should be counted or abandoned. The State Board for Elementary and Secondary Education took the latter course, which a committee of the board recommended after a meeting on Wednesday.

Kentucky's new system for assessing performance of individual schools relies on open-ended questions, performance events and portfolios of student work. Ed Reidy, the department's deputy commissioner for learning results services, recommended 18 months of research and development for the next generation of assessment tests, which could include multiple-choice questions. The board also: Agreed that a one-year deadline for increasing the pool of certified minority educators by 30 percent was unrealistic. Kathryn Wallace, the department's director of minority recruiting, said a new deadline will be recommended. Kentucky has 43,000 educators, 1,800 of which are from ethnic minority groups.

Rejected a request by Cassidy Elementary School in Lexington to allow all parents not just minority parents to vote in a special election to fill a minority seat on the school's decision-making council. Cassidy Elementary is among several schools that must hold special elections to ensure minority representation on councils. A law enacted this year requires schools with a minority enrollment of at least 8 percent to have a minority council member. The law says only minority parents may vote if a special election is needed. Cassidy Elementary Principal Richard Day said Wednesday that his school's plan would be more effective than the law in winning support for councils and minority members.

But an attorney general's opinion issued Wednesday said the Cassidy plan would be illegal. a Approved a plan for certifying private and parochial schools. It lets schools remain in programs for student teachers and interns. Film actor Dennis Morgan, 1940s leading man, dies Associated Press FRESNO, Calif.
