Spring Paper-Based Writing Order Window Open Through March 14, 2013

The order window for the spring paper-based Writing test (grade 11 only) is currently open. Districts will have through March 14, 2013 to complete their orders for the spring test window. Districts may order paper-based writing tests for their students using the Test Information Delivery Engine (TIDE) of the OAKS Online System. The TIDE User guide which is posted at http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?391, includes detailed instructions on the order process.

Please remember that the spring administration of the Writing Assessment will only be offered for students currently enrolled in Grade 11 who have not already taken and passed the assessment. ODE will not fill orders submitted by districts for students enrolled in a grade other than Grade 11 or for Grade 11 students who already have a passing score. In addition, please remember that students who participated in the Winter Writing window (either online or paper/pencil) may not participate in the Spring Writing Window. While districts will receive an overage of "blank" writing booklets to address fluctuations in student enrollment, districts must ensure that only eligible Grade 11 students use these booklets.
