KITE Suite is a suite of software used to administer tests for the Kansas Assessment Program. KITE’s two core features are KITE Client and Educator Portal.
KITE Client is a specially designed web browser that students use to take KAP tests. Educator Portal is a browser-based, administrative interface used to manage these tests.
Tests delivered through KITE come with a variety of features designed to ensure a smooth testing experience for all students. These include:
- Easy-to-use navigation
- Built-in tools and accommodations
- Technology-enhanced and technology-enabled item types, which provide more realistic ways of assessing student skills
KITE Client is a software program that must be installed on the computer or tablet used for testing. The minimum screen resolution required to run KITE is 1024x768.
