|OAKS Online Reading Achievement Standards for 2011-2012|
In a move to prepare students for the increased rigors of the new Common Core State Standards and the Oregon Diploma, last May the Oregon State Board of Education increased reading achievement standards for grades 3-8, effective for the 2011-12 school year. The high school achievement standard for "Meets" of 236 is the same.
Oregon reading achievement standards were reviewed by an expert panel in January 2011. Recommendations were made to increase the level of reading students are expected to know in elementary and middle school to create better alignment between the lower grades and high school graduation requirements for reading.
