The Kite® Suite is used to deliver summative, predictive interim, and interim mini-tests developed for the Kansas Assessment Program (KAP).
There are two main components of the Kite Suite:
Educator Portal is a browser-based, administrative interface used to assign and monitor tests, manage data, and print score reports.
Student Portal is a specially designed application used by students to take tests.
Tests delivered through Kite come with a variety of features designed to ensure a smooth testing experience for all students. These include:
- Secure, 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
- Full screen and locked coverage on the test-taking device, preventing students from accessing outside information during the test.
