In what grades will my child be tested? What subjects are tested? Which tests are mandatory? As a parent or guardian you may have a lot of questions about testing and we want to provide to you the most comprehensive information we can.
The state mandates testing for students once a year in grades 3-8. These tests, called OCCT tests, are used to assess students’ mastery of content. All tests are aligned to the state-mandated standards, which have been adopted by the State Board of Education. Currently, the standards are PASS-Priority Academic Standards and OAS (Oklahoma Academic Standards).
For the latest on academic standards, please visit the Oklahoma State Department of Education website: http://sde.ok.gov/sde/oklahoma-academic-standards.
Additionally, Edmond Public Schools makes available other tests such as a qualifying test for gifted and talented students, proficiency-based promotion tests and tests that assess students’ interests and career goals.
