NOTE: "..Oregon's statewide assessment system is called the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS), and includes tests administered annually by subject matter and grade. treeOregon public schools test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 8 and 11, and in science and social sciences in grades 5, 8, and 11. Additional assessments include the English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) for our English learners (Els) and the Extended Assessment for our students with special needs. For the 2014-15 school year, we replaced our previous state tests in reading, writing, and math with the new Smarter Balanced assessments in English language arts and math. We also field tested ELPA21, a new assessment for our English language learners that is aligned to our current state standards. In addition to state tests, schools administer local performance assessments to give students feedback on their learning and academic progress, as well as provide opportunities for students in select grades to take national assessments like the NAEP and PSAT..."
