OAKS Online Braille Interface Training for Teachers of the Visually Impaired and Test Administrators

In addition to Test Administration and Security Training, any individual administering OAKS Online through the Braille interface is required to participate in the ODE-provided OAKS Online Braille Interface Training.

The OAKS Online Braille Interface Training will prepare Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVIs) to set up and administer OAKS Online using the Braille interface and supporting Braille technologies (JAWS 12 or 13 Screen Reader, Duxbury Braille translation software, refreshable Braille display and embosser).

In partnership with the Blind and Visually Impaired Student Fund and NWRESD, ODE will provide six on-site trainings for the 2012-13 school year:
- January 7, 2013 - Columbia Regional 8:30-12:30
- January 8, 2013 - NWRESD/Eastern 8:30-12:30
- January 9, 2013 - Lane 12:30-4:30
- January 11, 2013 - WESD/Cascade 12:30-4:30
- January 15, 2013 - Southern 8:30-12:30
- January 17, 2013 - Central 8:30-12:30

If your district serves students who will test using the Braille Interface prior to January 7, please contact Scott McCallum at Northwest Regional ESD (503.614.1260 or smccallum@nwresd.k12.or.us eMail) to arrange an alternative training session for the TVI that serves your district.
