Kentucky's Unbridled Learning system is complex — here, we break it down.
Each Kentucky public school and district earned a single score on a scale of 0-100. In general, that score is a combination of five things:
College and career readiness measures
Measure of annual growth
How well minority, low-income and special education students, and those learning English performed compared to their peers.
Exams given include the new Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress test for grades three through eight; the ACT college entrance exam; Explore and Plan, which predict success on the ACT; end-of-course and Advanced Placement exams for high school students; and the National Assessment for Educational Progress for grades four and eight.
The Kentucky Department of Education used the overall scores for each school and district to compare it to like institutions.
Because this is reported as a percentile ranking, the closer a school gets to 100, the better. If a high school earns a percentile ranking of 75, for example, it performed better than 75 percent of high schools statewide.
Based on its percentile ranking, each school and district has earned one of the following three classifications:
Distinguished: 90th percentile and above
Proficient: 70th-89th percentile
Needs improvement: 69th percentile and below
Schools and districts that do exceptionally well in rankings or growth can earn additional classifications that come with perks like website logos and banners. (State education officials say there isn’t enough money to give these schools monetary awards.)
But schools and districts that perform at the lowest levels will earn additional classifications, too, and the state will target them for extra assistance.
Annual Measurable Objective
Each school was assigned an Annual Measurable Objective based on the improvement of the overall score. If a school’s overall score improved by one point or more, that school is considered to have met its AMO, meaning test scores, college- and career-readiness and graduation rates are improving together.
