• Testing for Entrance

    KCPS is offering the following sponsored testing dates for the iReady Assessment (grades 5-9) and NWEA (grades 10-11), which is required for entrance into Lincoln. All tests will be given at Manual Career Center, 1215 E. Truman Rd., Kansas City, MO, 64106.

    The following parameters and requirements are in place for KCPS assessment sessions:

    • The full registration must be completed the Wednesday prior to the assessment to allow the student profile to be processed. KCPS will not accept walk-in or late registrations.
    • Registration is limited to 60 participants per testing session.
