College and Career Readiness Assessment (CCRA)
EPS has chosen to use the ACT as our state-required CCRA. The ACT will be given to all 11th grade students in the spring.
Taking the ACT is a graduation requirement. By taking the ACT, students will get an overall perspective of their academic knowledge ELA, Math, Science and STEM.
The ACT is also a college entrance requirement at most colleges.
Oklahoma Academic Standards and Assessments:
April is typically testing month in Oklahoma. Do you know what subject tests your child(ren) will take and in what grades?
For comprehensive academic standards and assessment information, please visit: http://sde.ok.gov/sde/oklahoma-academic-standards.
It is important to remember that a student’s strengths, abilities, and potential cannot be measured by a single test score. Each student grows at different rates, both physically and academically. State tests help gauge how your student is growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in the Oklahoma Academic Standards. State test results, when combined with other information (i.e., report card grades, teacher feedback, classroom performance, and local tests), can help you and your local school support your student’s growth.
Your student’s state test results will be available in the OSTP Student/Family Portal.
Information provided in the OSTP portal helps you know:
- How your student performed in each key academic area
- Where your student is doing well and where they may need additional support at home and at school
- How your student performed compared to others
If you have not already set up an account, you will need your student’s 10-digit State ID (STN) number and date of birth. If you have last year’s OSTP results or your child’s report card which can be found in the parent portal on Infinite Campus, the 10-digit State ID (STN) can be found in either of these places. It is labeled State ID
If you have questions, please contact your child’s school.
