State Testing

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)

Science

English Language Arts (ELA)

Mathematics

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.

See the Assessment Guide and Calendar below for more details.

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.

Parent Opt-Out and Exemption Guidelines for State Testing

Parent Request: Opt-out of Oregon English Language Arts and/or Mathematics Summative Assessments

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 Math assessments. The form must be filed annually and is available in multiple languages.

  1. Parents must return completed form to the school office. This is an annual requirement.
  2. Incomplete or modified forms will not be accepted.
  3. Parents may not write in additional assessments on the state opt-out form.
  4. Forms will be accepted at any time. If a form is submitted after a student has begun testing, the student will stop testing but the items answered up to that point will be scored. The student will receive a performance level and/or overall score based on the incomplete submission.
