HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Six employees at Hopkinsville High School were put on paid administrative leave after allegations were made that procedures for a state standardized test may not have been followed.

The test in question was the state’s compass assessment.

It’s an untimed college placement test given to seniors who have not met the benchmarks for the ACT.

The Kentucky Department of Education is investigating but the Christian County superintendent says it doesn’t appear that anyone cheated or that any of the scores were compromised.

The superintendent says the employees were back on the job after three days of leave.
