Kentucky provides an opportunity to study a high-stakes test-based accountability system that uses milepost testing to see how schools react to the accountability pressures. Kentucky has been in the forefront of the test-based accountability movement, and many states have looked to Kentucky when designing their own accountability systems. Hence, lessons learned in Kentucky will be immediately relevant to other states.
