Kentucky's education commissioner is warning districts to expect low scores in reading and math when the results of new state tests are released. 

Terry Holliday said scored will be lower because the tests are based on benchmarks from new guidelines the state has adopted.

The commissioner is encouraging teachers not to be discouraged by the low scores, but to use them as a basis for improvement.

The results of the new K-Prep tests, which students took in the spring, will be released next month.
