WRITING Local Performance Assessment Requirement

The purpose of the local performance assessment requirement is to ensure that Oregon students are afforded opportunities to learn and to receive feedback regarding their academic progress.


Local Performance Assessment Requirements


Local Performance Assessments must be:
  • A standardized measure (e.g. activity, exercise, problem, or work sample scored using the official state scoring guide) embedded within the curriculum that evaluates the application of knowledge and skills;
  • Either a work sample scored using the official state scoring guides or a comparable measure adopted by the district;
  • Administered at least once a year to all students at Grades 3 through 8 and once in high school.
