Writing Assessment Opportunities

  • Students at Grades 9 and 11 may test once during one of the two regular windows; Grade 10 students must test once during one of the two windows
  • Grade 9 students should only be tested if they are taking CIM-level classes and have produced work that shows they are capable of meeting CIM standards;
  • Only early-graduating seniors may participate in the October/November window; all other seniors may re-test during either or both of the two later windows.

“Practice Testing”

ONLY those grade 9 students, receiving instruction at the CIM level, and showing CIM level proficiency, should test at the CIM level.

Using the state test as a format for “practice testing” is out of compliance with state policy.

accommodations overview
Accommodations Overview

Accommodation—a change in how a test is presented to or responded to by a student.

  • Provides the student equal access and equal opportunity to demonstrate proficiency.
  • Considered “standard administration” and have the opportunity to “meet” or “exceed” the standard.
modification overview
Modification Overview

A Modification is a substantial change in the standard administration of the test.

  • Allows the student to engage productively in the assessment which includes changes in the instructional level, content, and performance criteria.
  • Under modified conditions scores are not considered for determining whether the student “meets” or “exceeds” the CIM benchmark.

Scores obtained under modified conditions:

    • Are included in AYP (“does not meet”)
    • Do NOT count toward meeting performance standards for individual students
    • Are included in participation counts for AYP and Report Card
other assessments
Other Assessments
  • Targeted Assessments
    • Either TESA or Paper Pencil
  • Side-by-Side
    • Spanish (Mathematics, Science, Social Sciences)
    • Russian (download only)
      • Mathematics grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, & CIM
      • Science benchmarks 2, 3, & CIM
  • Career and Life Role Assessment System (CLRAS)
  • Extended Reading, Mathematics, Writing, and Science
  • Juried Assessments
  • Appeals
  • English Language Proficiency Assessment

Targeted Assessments

A Targeted Assessment (formerly challenge) is from a different level than the grade of enrollment – and is consistent with the level of instruction.

A student may target a lower grade level ONLY if doing so is described in the students’ IEP.

If approved by the USDOE for 2005 – 2006, 2% of all assessments used to determine a district’s AYP may include these tests.


Side – by - Side

The side-by-side assessments have the same items presented in both Spanish and English or in both Russian and English.

Students benefiting from seeing the items in both languages can meet standards for both the CIM and for AYP. These are “standard administration” tests.

extended assessments clras
Extended Assessments/CLRAS

What are they?

  • Alternatives to grade level assessments

Who takes them?

  • Students with significant disabilities that are unable to take the general statewide assessment

Who gives them?

  • Only “qualified” assessors should administer extended assessments

For more information about Extended Assessments & CLRAS go to:


juried assessments
Juried Assessments

What is it?

  • Juried Assessments are an alternative path for students who can meet the CIM standards, but are unable to demonstrate mastery on one or more statewide assessments.

Who uses the Juried Assessment process?

  • Any student who has mastered grade level content, but is unable to demonstrate the mastery on statewide assessments.
  • Students who have entered Oregon schools at grades 11 or 12, and choose not to take the statewide assessments.
  • “Eligible” students demonstrating reading and/or writing skills at the standard level, but in their native language.
juried assessments1
Juried Assessments

What is a Collection of Evidence?

  • A set of materials gathered to show that the student is performing at the standard level on the grade level content.
  • The collection must address the State Board-adopted content and performance standards

How does the Juried Assessment Process begin?

  • Districts are required to notify parents of the opportunity for students to use the Juried Assessment Process

Do JA’s “count” for AYP and/or CIM?

  • In general, yes!

For detailed requirements and intent to submit deadlines go to: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/results/?id=175

writing test appeals
Writing Test Appeals
  • State scores must be in the appropriate range of composite scores.
    • CIM: 25 – 39
    • 7th: 25 – 39
    • 4th: 20 – 31
  • Trained rater re-scores paper. If score appears higher, re-submit paper.
  • Attach original paper to ‘Appeals Form’.
    • Completely fill out form.
    • Local rater and district test coordinator must sign form.
  • ODE must receive by May 31, 2006.
  • Appealed scores always replace original score.
test security
Test Security

Security procedures are designed to protect the integrity and confidentiality of those test questions, prompts, and problems that are not released for public use; the security of these materials is necessary so that they can be used in later years to measure trends in performance.

Test administration procedures are to ensure consistent statewide test administration. When this doesn’t happen:

  • Report to ODE Office of Assessment and Information Services
  • Determine an action plan
  • Conduct an investigation
  • Report the results of the investigation
  • If appropriate – contact TSPC re: possible loss of licensure

A PowerPoint presentation about test security is available on the ODE website.

Go to: http://www.ode.state.or.us/teachlearn/testing/admin/testsecurity.ppt

test security q a
Test Security Q/A
  • To maintain secure and fair test administration:
    • Teachers and proctors must sign the Assurance of Test Securityform to communicate the importance of “standardized” administration of tests each year. These are to be kept at the district office for one year.
    • Concepts that had not been taught earlier may not be introduced to students prior to giving the test (don’t give test materials out too soon)
    • Proctors may not suggest which prompt a student ought to select for writing
    • Unused test materials, after each testing window, must be returned to the District Test Coordinator. Schools may not keep extra booklets or copy test forms for practice or future instructional use
    • Test forms have a “core” set of items that are the same year to year. This set links the current test to previous years’ tests and ensures the test is consistent and fair from year to year
    • Any teacher responsible for proctoring test administration for students “must be in the room monitoring this process and be available for students who may have operational questions.”

Student Staging (formerly PADM)

Student Staging Overview:

  • The intent of the Student Staging web site is to make Assessment data more complete and accurate before state-generated reports are issued.
  • The Student Staging web site is preloaded with the demographic portion of student records.
  • Each Assessment Window is a different Student Staging database file.
  • One student record is displayed on the screen at a time.
  • Each student will have multiple records if s/he has taken more than one test.

For instructions on accessing and using the Student Staging site go to: https://district.ode.state.or.us/docs/asmt/tststg/


NOTE: TESA data updates student staging daily!


Work Sample Requirements

  • For writing, speaking, and mathematicsproblemsolving, students in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 must complete one work sample scored with the state scoring guide.
  • Students at the CIM levelmust complete 2 work samples from different strands (SRCs 3, 4, or 5) in mathematics problem solving; and 3 samples in writing (one persuasive, one expository AND one imaginative or narrative). In speaking, CIM students must complete 3 samples (one persuasive, one informative, and one unrehearsed).

Work Sample Requirements

  • For scientific inquiry, students in grades 4 – 8 and at the CIM level must complete one work sample, scored in the required dimensions.
