An achievement standard is an objective definition of a certain level of performance, in a content area at a particular grade, in terms of a cut score or a range of scores on the OAKS psychometric scale. Best practices now include adoption of cross-subject cross-grade

Beginning in 2014-2015, Oregon’s Achievement Standards in Mathematics and English language arts will be aligned with the Smarter Balanced scale, with final cut scores for the summative assessment verified and adopted by the State Board of Education by summer 2015. ODE intends to hold the high school achievement level steady during the transition period for purposes of the assessment of essential skills (graduation requirements).
