Dos and Dont’s


  • Online testing is mandatory for all schools. Schools must offer OAKS Online to students.

  • Students may take OAKS Online Math, Reading, and Science tests up to three times per year.

  • Individual students may use paper/pencil tests if it is specified on a student’s IEP or 504 Plan, or if the district documents that the online test is not the most appropriate assessment for the student. Determination to use paper/pencil testing is content-specific.
