|Smarter Balanced Selected to Replace OAKS Starting in 2015|
Oregon Department of Education recently convened a workgroup of 18 education stakeholders to review all assessment options and identify the assessment that will best meet the needs of our students, our schools, and our state. The workgroup's unanimous recommendation was for Oregon to adopt Smarter Balanced. On Thursday, May 16, the State Board considered the workgroup's recommendation and selected Smarter Balanced to test students' mastery of the new Common Core State Standards in English and math starting in the 2014-15 school year.
