Mathematics Assessment

Purpose

Oregon’s Statewide Mathematics Assessments include the Kindergarten Assessment, and for grades 3-8 and high school, local performance assessments as well as computer-based tests.

Assessments

  • Oregon Mathematics Assessment Claim, Target, and Standards Crosswalk
    These documents align the Oregon Mathematics Assessment claims and targets with the Oregon CCSS - Mathematics standards. The claims and targets can be used to design classroom lessons and district assessments. In addition, the document provides Claim Achievement Level Descriptors and serves as a guide in understanding the Oregon Mathematics Assessment reports.
  • This site provides examples of test questions used on the Oregon Summative Assessment in English language arts and mathematics. Teachers, parents, students, administrators, and policymakers can experience these test items just as students encounter them.
    These samples are not intended to be used as practice tests, but educators can use them to better understand how the Oregon Summative Assessment measures college- and career-ready content.
  • Oregon’s Mathematics Assessment – Achievement/Performance Standards
    Reference document shows the achievement standards for Oregon’s Statewide Assessments by content area and grade/ benchmark level.

  • Understanding Proficiency: Performance Tasks
    Resources to help educators develop a deeper understanding of the Oregon Common Core State Standards by analyzing student work on performance tasks. Central to these resources are samples of real student work on sample ELA and Math
    performance tasks.

​In Oregon, the Local Performance Assessment Requirement states that school districts shall administer one or more performance assessment each year to all students in grades 3 through 8 and in high school in: mathematics, scientific inquiry, speaking, and writing.

Performance assessments must be a standardized measure (e.g., activity, exercise, problem, or work sample scored by a common scoring instrument, such as the official state scoring guides or another scoring guide adopted by the district) that is embedded in the school curriculum and evaluates the application of students’ knowledge and skills. Work Samples, scored using the official state scoring guide, are just one example of acceptable performance assessments. Districts have substantial flexibility when it comes to planning the performance assessments that will be used to fulfill this requirement.

In addition to the required areas, districts are encourage to consider administering local performance assessments in other skill areas as appropriate to the local curriculum. For instance, districts may choose to administer local performance assessments in any of the other areas, such as Social Science Analysis.
Scoring Guide and Feedback Forms
 
For local performance assessments, districts may locally develop scoring guidelines so that they can provide feedback to students, or they may use the state Scoring Guide.
