|OAKS Online Field Test Items|
On January 9, 2013, ODE will introduce additional test items into the OAKS Online assessments. As of January 9, students will see approximately 5 additional test items per test compared to tests administered in the fall. These additional test items are field test items and will not impact student scores. Once testing for the 2012-13 school year is complete, ODE staff will analyze student responses to these field test items and determine whether to include these items operationally in future years.
For more information about the role of field testing in Oregon's test development process, please refer to ODE's Technical Manual Volume 2: Test Development (http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=1305). For subject-specific information, please refer to the Test Specifications and Blueprints (http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=496).
