2022 Oklahoma State Testing Program Information
As your student’s first teacher, you are a critical part of their education. It is important to remember that your student’s strengths, abilities and potential cannot be measured by a single test score. Each student grows at different rates both physically and academically. State tests help gauge how your student is growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in the Oklahoma Academic Standards. State test results, when combined with other information (i.e., report card grades, teacher feedback, classroom performance and local tests) can help you and the teacher understand where your student is making progress and where they may need extra support.
To support families, the OSDE offers the following resources and information:
Parent Portal Toolkit provides information about state tests, how to interpret scores and how to to use the scores to support your student.
OSDE Family Guides provides links to grade-level guides that illustrate what is expected of students at each grade level in different content areas along with activities families can do at home to further support your student's learning
OSDE Family Engagement is home to tools and resources that support partnerships between families and schools.
OSTP Parent, Student, Teacher Guides (PSTGs) provide information about what your student is learning and how you can support them at home; as well as, giving you examples of the types of questions used on the state test.
