Kentucky Occupational Skills Standards Assessment (KOSSA)

Senior Preparatory Students enrolled in programs where a KOSSA is available must take the KOSSA if they are not taking an approved industry certification and have not previously tested in KOSSA. Underclass Preparatory Students may also take the KOSSA but will not be included for Perkins accountability reporting until their senior year.
