TOPEKA, Kan. — The way students are tested in Kansas is about to change and that could jeopardize their privacy.   The Kansas State Department of Education will switch to new reading and math assessment tests to meet with the new Common Core standards.
The Center for Educational Testing at Kansas University currently administers the tests for students in the third through eighth grade.
New tests could mean switching from KU to ACT or the federal government, which some critics believe would make it easy to share test scores and other personal information with third parties.
The Kansas Department of Education says confidentiality agreements will be signed if they decide to use another source other than KU.  No final decision has been made.
