OAKS Writing Assessment at Grades 4 and 7

The 4th and 7th grade OAKS Writing assessments will not be returning for the 2013-14 school year. Over the past few weeks, ODE has received a strong message from the field in a variety of venues that those assessments should not be administered during the 2013-14 school year. The 11th and 12th grade OAKS Writing assessments (winter window only for students in grade 12) will return for the 2013-14 school year. As districts continue to implement the Common Core State Standards and prepare for the Smarter Balanced assessment in 2014-15, it's important to continue measuring students' writing ability locally in order to address any knowledge and skill gaps effectively.

Please contact Derek Brown (derek.brown@state.or.us eMail) if you have any questions, at 503-947-5841.
