***Oregon Department of Education leaders will discuss Oregon's transition to the Smarter Balanced assessments in English and math on March 5th in Redmond. Come to learn more about our new state tests at 6pm in the Technology Center on COCC's Redmond campus. Refreshments will be provided.
Oregon and more than 40 other states have developed and adopted shared academic expectations, called the Common Core State Standards. "They are clear, consistent guidelines for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level in math & English language arts in order to graduate high school ready for college, careers, and life." said Derek Brown, Director of Assessment, Oregon Department of Education.
This spring the new Smarter Balanced assessments will replace OAKS state tests for reading, writing, and math. The Smarter Balanced assessments, aligned to Oregon's updated learning standards, are more challenging than Oregon's previous, muliple choice only tests and will tell us where students are on their path to college-and career-readiness.
