ESS - Academic Data and Assessment

Academic Data and Assessment

Student's progress is measured by data collected from a variety of assessments given at OSD.  The student's grade level, age, level of functional ability, and IEP will determine the type of assessment given.  The more common assessments given are:


  • Brigance Inventory
  • Key Math
  • Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)
  • Measure of Academic Progress (MAPs from NWEA)
  • Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS - statewide assessment for Science only)
  • Smarter Balance (SBAC - statewide assessment for English and Math only)


Teachers may opt to offer the following assessments as well:


  • Star Math
  • Star Reading
  • Easy CBM
  • EdMark


Teachers form teams during Profession Learning Community times on Fridays to look at the data and create ways to improve instruction in the classroom.
