Assessment and Accountability Update

November 16, 2023


Additional SEED Survey Administration Resources Published

The updated Training Module 9 - SEED Survey is now available on the Assessment Training Materials webpage. As a reminder, the SEED Survey Administration Manual was published on ODE’s Test Administration webpage under the Administration Manuals section on November 6.

Starting with the 2023-24 school year, districts are required to make the SEED Survey available to students in grades 3 through 11.

Please contact the ODE Assessment Team with questions or concerns.

District Assessment Inventory Deadline Updated (REPEAT)

The deadline for completion of the District Assessment Inventory is being moved to reduce conflict with the deadline for HB 3198 Early Literacy Grant applications.

District Assessment Inventory forms are now due by 5:00 PM on January 26, 2024. The District Assessment Inventory page, including the Fact Sheet and Context and Instructions resources, will be updated to reflect this new due date.

Districts do not need to take any special action to submit a completed Inventory form. ODE will consider all open forms complete at 5:00 on January 26.

Districts who have not yet received a link to begin completing their Inventory form should have their District Test Coordinator (DTC) designate a point of contact.

Please contact the ODE District Assessment Inventory Team with questions or concerns.



ELTC District Informational Sessions (REPEAT)

This is a reminder that the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Department of Early Learning and Care (DELC) will be hosting their last informational session for districts.
