Assessment of Essential Skills
http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=2042
For the first time, students will be required to demonstrate proficiency in certain essential skills skills that are deemed critical for future success before they are awarded the diploma. Essential Skills are process skills that can be applied in a variety of courses, subjects, experiences and settings.

Beginning in 2012, students must demonstrate proficiency in identified essential skills. The revised Essential Skills timeline adopted by the State Board in August 2009 is as follows:
  • 2012: Read and comprehend a variety of text
  • 2013: Write clearly and accurately
  • 2014: Apply mathematics in a variety of settings
The remaining Essential Skills will be phased-in over subsequent years, timeline to be determined.

Assessment of Essential Skills Toolkit Web based interactive resource for implementing the Essential Skills assessment in your school or district.

How to Use the Toolkit:

The Assessment of Essential Skills Toolkit is organized as a sequential process, but you may revisit prior steps or skip steps as you develop your district/school strategic assessment plan.


Video Training Modules:

ODE provides videos that help schools and district move through the Essential Skills toolkit.  Modules are 3-5 mins in length.  They can be used in sequence or separately.

 
Work Samples and the Essential Skills
http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=2661
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 were to collect and score.
