State's education commissioner expects lower math and reading scores this year

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Expect low test scores -- that's the warning from Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday as the state prepares to release the new K-PREP test results.

In a letter to teachers -- Holliday says scores in math and reading will be lower because the tests are based on benchmarks from new guidelines the state has adopted.

Science and social studies results should be in line with past scores because that content has remained the same since 2007.

The test results will be released next month.
