OMAAP Overview
  • Tests are intended for “gap” students for

whom the OAAP and the general OCCT

assessments are inappropriate.

  • The goal is to provide a test that is comparable

to the OCCT but is more accessible for this

population.

  • Items were developed by modifying previous

years’ general test items.

omaap overview1
OMAAP Overview
  • Students who qualify for the OMAAP represent roughly two percent (2%) of the student population.
  • Eligible students can be determined using the updated Criteria Checklist for Oklahoma's Alternate Assessments located on the Office of Accountability and Assessments Web site <www.sde.state.ok.us>.

Testing
  • Section 1 (Writing Task) on the English II and III will be administered in a paper/pencil format in an answer document and must be administered on either of the two statewide EOI Writing days. Students will respond to two writing prompts this year.
  • Sections 2 and 3 (Multiple-Choice) may be administered on any day or consecutive days before or after Section 1 within the testing window.
