Kite® Suite

Kite Suite is a suite of software used to administer tests for the Kansas Assessment Program. Kite’s two core features are Kite Student Portal and Kite Educator Portal.

Kite Student Portal 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
