Content and Assessment Panels

People meeting

The Oregon Department of Education establishes a number of Content and Assessment panels to assist in the various activities that surround the academic content standards. The panels’ major responsibilities may include the following:

  • Review new field test items for content alignment, estimated difficulty, and grade level appropriateness, for subjects with statewide assessments.
  • Review and provide suggestions for revision (with input from other Oregonians) to the academic content standards and eligible content, based on the benchmarking of Oregon Standards and assessments with national and international standards.
  • Review and develop materials designed to assist teachers in implementing the common curriculum goals, academic content standards, performance standards, and/or performance requirements.
  • Evaluate instructional resources matched to the academic content standards.
