The OAKS Online, Online Writing, and paper-based Writing test windows will close on Wednesday, May 22. Once the window closes, students will no longer have access to their online tests, and AIR will push through all partial OAKS Online and Online Writing tests for scoring. Paper-based writing tests completed after May 22 will be treated as invalid and will not be scored.
Districts must ensure that all unused paper-based writing test booklets, including blank overage booklets, are securely shredded and that all completed tests are shipped for scoring by Monday, June 3. When packaging completed tests for return shipping, districts must use the return mailing labels included in the Return Kit delivered to districts during the week of May 3. Instructions for packaging completed tests for return shipment and scoring are included on p. G-19 of the Test Administration Manual and are also repeated in checklist format in the return checklist included in the return kit. Tests shipped after June 3 will be treated as invalid and will not be scored.
