• Testing for Entrance

    KCPS will offer testing dates for Lincoln. Testing dates and application links are below.

    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.
    • Students must arrive by 8:30 AM on assessment dates. Assessments will begin promptly at 9 AM.
    • Both Reading and Mathematics portions of the assessment must be completed in under five hours.
    • Cell phones must be turned off put away (backpack, check at door). If a cell phone is in use in any form during the test it will invalidate the testing session.
    • The i Ready assessment requires headphones, test-takers should either plan on bringing their own (no Bluetooth connections will be available) or KCPS will provide a set of headphones.
    • The i Ready assessment will have an embedded calculator for items where it is allowable. Students will not be allowed to use an outside calculator.
