Retesting Students in Grades 3 - 8

As a reminder, districts may not retest students in grades 3 - 8 who have already met or exceeded the standard unless the district first receives explicit consent from the student's parent or guardian for the current school year. Retesting a student in grade 3 - 8 who has already met or exceeded the achievement standard without first receiving explicit consent from the student's parent or guardian is considered a testing impropriety and may result in the invalidation of student tests. The Best Practices Guide for Administering OAKS provides guidance to help districts identify when it is appropriate to retest a student who has already met or exceeded the achievement standard. In addition, ODE has posted a Promising Practice PDF on avoiding retesting students without parental consent to the Promising Practices webpage (http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=2444).
