OAKS Extended Assessments 1% Cap for Districts

Extended assessment results meeting the alternate achievement standards can represent no more than 1% of the tests meeting the standard at the district level under Title 1, final regulations, section 200.13. Any proficient scores above the 1% cap must be reclassified as non-proficient once the 1% cap is exceeded by a district. To accommodate small populations, reclassification of proficient test scores as non-proficient will occur only if there are five or more test scores in the district meeting the alternate assessment standards.

Prior to August 19, 2011, the district must identify which student assessment scores, among those that met the alternate assessment standards, should be counted by the state as non-proficient for the purpose of determining AYP. The 1% can be applied to either or both mathematics and reading as long as the total number of extended assessment tests meeting/exceeding is not greater than 1% of the total number of all tests used for the district AYP performance calculation.

On June 29, ODE sent an email to districts over the 1% cap requesting District Test Coordinators to identify the records that will be counted as non-proficient. For assistance, please contact your Regional Assessment ESD partner PDF.
