State testing is just around the corner. As many of you are aware, the state has transitioned to the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) test for English Language Arts and Math. It replaces the old OAKS test that your student has been very familiar with. The new SBAC test is more comprehensive and interactive than the OAKS test. While the old OAKS test was based on Oregon State Standards, the Smarter Balanced Test is rooted in the Common Core State Standards. All juniors will take the test this year regardless of how they have performed on OAKS tests in prior years. We will start our testing on April 27 with the math test. State testing for science will remain the same. Please encourage your student to put out there best effort as the test is one way to meet the state required essential skills of reading and math.
