2013-14 Secure Browser, Practice Tests, and Training Site

On Thursday, August 8, 2013, ODE communicated a delay in the release of the 2013-2014 Secure Browsers used to administer Oregon's OAKS Online, ELPA, and Online Writing assessments because of issues related to supporting Java-free recording for ELPA. Oregon's test vendor, the American Institutes for Research (AIR), has continued troubleshooting the remaining issues over the weekend. While AIR has made progress in diagnosing the cause of the issues and testing solutions, we still do not have a firm estimate on when the 2013-14 Secure Browsers will be ready to release.

Once all remaining issues have been resolved and undergone thorough quality control testing, we will communicate a firm date for releasing the Secure Browsers and the Practice Tests and Training Site. ODE and AIR apologize for the continued delay and thank you for your patience.
