The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) strives to provide every student with a positive and productive assessment experience, generating results that are a fair and accurate estimate of each student’s achievement. In the process of developing its next-generation assessments to measure students’ knowledge and skills as they progress toward college and career readiness, ODE recognizes that the validity of assessment results depends on each and every student having appropriate accessibility supports (formerly “accommodations”) when needed based on the constructs being measured by the particular statewide assessment. To that end, please consult the Oregon Accessibility Manual as well as the related resources and links posted on this webpage.
These resources may be made available to all students during testing.NOTE: Although the ODE-provided resources available below are not secure materials, they contain specific content that must not be altered. TAs may enlarge ODE-provided resources or their parts (e.g., as a poster or wall chart) but must NOT otherwise alter their content or change their presentation.
Oregon’s online ELA, Mathematics, Science, and Social Sciences assessments are available to students who use Braille through a Braille interface.
These documents provide examples of promising practices for implementing various test administration and security requirements found in the Test Administration Manual. ODE is collaborating with districts from around the state to gather and share examples of promising testing practices. If you have a promising practice that you’d like to share, or if there is a test administration or security topic that you’d like us to include, contact Holly Carter at 503-947-5739.
Communicating about changes to Oregon's statewide testing system is an important part of keeping our families informed about and engaged in their children's education. The following resources are intended to support school and district-wide communications plans to ensure the greatest spread of information possible.
