Assessment

Assessments

Standardized and classroom assessments provide students, teachers, and parents with information about how well a student is learning essential knowledge and skills in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. Data from these assessments also help teachers and administrators identify students who would benefit from additional or different learning opportunities, improve classroom instruction for students, identify areas of focus for school and district improvement efforts, and monitor progress toward the district goal of increasing academic achievement for every student.

Parents can view student assessment results through the parent portal, ParentVUE, accessible here.  Directions for accessing test scores in ParentVUE are accessible here - scroll to bottom question "Where can I find state and national tests that have been taken".  Contact your child's school directly for questions regarding testing dates and test results.  

We invite you to learn more about the different assessments our students take by choosing the grade and test below. Not all students will take all assessments listed. View each test for more information on which students may participate in the individual assessments.​

Grade Level Assessments

Oregon Statewide Assessment System (OSAS) Annual Notice

In 2010, Oregon adopted higher K-12 standards in English Language Arts and Math to ensure all students move from grade to grade with the academic knowledge and skills necessary for success beyond high school. The state tests: challenge your child to think critically, go beyond multiple choice and ask your child to explain their answers, act as a snapshot of your child’s progress, and help us identify schools that need additional supports to ensure more students are meeting higher standards.
