Kansas won't release data from reading, math tests

July 8, 2014

Kansas won't be issuing any report cards this year on how well its public school students performed on standardized reading and math tests after cyberattacks and other problems this spring.

The State Board of Education decided Tuesday not to release any scores.

The board's decision means there won't be a report on how students scored overall statewide or how students in each school district or individual schools scored.

The University of Kansas center that designed the tests told the board last month that it should not release data for individual schools and districts because of cyberattacks and other problems from March 10 to April 10.

The state Department of Education typically releases data from testing each fall.

Even if true, as long as Obama's IRS can blame computer failure for covering up incriminating data, why shouldn't everyone use that excuse?
