Oregon Statewide Assessment:
Our students take a few Statewide Assessments each year. We use the results in at least two ways. First, we use the results to evaluate our academic program. We also use the results to help us in placing students in various classes. The more students take the assessments, the more accurate our results.
Every year students in grades 3-8 and 11, throughout Oregon take state assessments prescribed by the Oregon Department of Education. In addition, David Douglas School District uses HMH RI and iReady Math as both their interim and progress monitoring assessments for students in grades 6-8 for both math and reading.
These tests include (but are not limited to) the following:
- English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA21) and Alt-ELP
- Oregon Statewide Assessments (OSA) – Standard and Extended (ORExt)
- English Language Arts (ELA)
The purpose of the assessments is to show individual student growth over time and to provide supplementary student-specific data that teachers can use to ensure each and every child is on track to reach goals for college and career readiness.Oregon state law requires all districts to inform parents that a form is available from the Oregon Department of Education that provides the opportunity to opt your child out of the ELA and/or Math assessments for the school year. The form must be filed annually and is available in 14 languages. Should you choose to opt your child out of providing valuable information about his/her progress in English Language Arts and/or Math as compared to peers statewide, then please fill out the form found on this website and submit it to your child’s school.
Middle School Assessment Calendar 2023-24.
Please see the following information if you wish to opt your student out of the State Assessments.
Part of our preparation for our OSAS testing season is sending out to our David Douglas parent community OSAS ELA and Math 30-Day Notification Letters for the 2023-24 school year. This notice and opt out forms are available to the public now via our DDSD website or link to a Google Drive folder with the ODE 30-day notice letters.
