2013-14 Secure Browsers and Practice Tests Now Available

Following extensive internal and external quality control testing in partnership with school districts around Oregon, ODE and AIR have confirmed that all issues with the Java-free secure browsers have been successfully resolved. The following applications of the OAKS Online System are now available for districts through the OAKS Portal:
  • The Secure Browsers for supported Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems used to administer Oregon's OAKS Online, ELPA, and Online Writing assessments are available for download and installation.

  • The apps used to administer OAKS Online on iPad and Android tablets are available for download and installation. (Schools that plan to test students using Chromebooks will be able to request Chromebook accounts in TIDE when TIDE opens for the 2013-2014 academic year on October 1.)

  • The Training Site, including the OAKS Online, ELPA, and Online Writing Practice tests, are available for district training purposes (note: the 2013-14 Secure Browsers will need to be installed prior to using the updated Practice Tests).

We appreciate your patience as we have worked through the issues related to supporting Java-free recording for ELPA!
