Essential Skills and Local Performance Assessment (work sample) Requirements
A work sample is a representative sample of individual student work (e.g., research paper, statistical experiment, speaking presentation) that is scored using an official state scoring guide (i.e., writing, speaking, mathematics problem solving, scientific inquiry, and social science analysis). Since 2000, the State Board of Education has identified the number and types of work samples that local school districts are to collect and score. When the State Board approved OAR 581-022-0615 Assessment of Essential Skills in June 2008, they provided for the continued use of work samples under the new graduation requirements. Under the new OAR, students may use work samples to meet both the essential skills graduation requirement and the annual local performance assessment requirement.
