The Office of Curriculum and Instruction is committed to improving student outcomes and teacher instruction through the use high-quality assessments. By gathering test results, teachers are able make informed decisions regarding student instruction. Test results are also used to inform curriculum decisions at the school and district level. Below, you will find examples of assessments administered throughout our school district.

 

Criterion-referenced Tests

Oklahoma Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) serve as the state-adopted academic standards for all curriculum areas. All classroom instruction and criterion-referenced tests administered in Yukon Public Schools align to Oklahoma PASS standards. As we prepare our students for future careers, Yukon will continue to implement a rigorous curriculum to meet the ever growing needs and demands our students encounter for the jobs of tomorrow.‚Äč

Oklahoma State Testing Program (OSTP) Assessments

The Office of Curriculum and Instruction assists in the implementation and administration of the Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP). Oklahoma law states, tests shall be administered to every student enrolled in a tested grade; these assessments include the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Test (OCCT) and the Oklahoma Alternate Assessment Program (OAAP) . All students enrolled in Yukon Public Schools will be administered all the state-designated tests. 

ACCESS for ELLs

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires students who are English Language Learners (ELL) to annually demonstrate proficiency and progress in English. The ACCESS for ELLs is a secure, large-scale, English language proficiency assessment administered to Kindergarten through 12th grade ELL students.

Homeschool and Non-accredited Placement

Prior to enrolling in Yukon Public Schools, students who were previously homeschooled or enrolled in a non-accredited school may be administered a placement test. Current assessment data, short-term ability to master grade-level content, and long-term ability to master necessary skills for future academic success are factors used by the district to determine grade placement.

Proficiency Based Promotion

Students must demonstrate proficiency at the 90% level in core curriculum areas to qualify for a grade-level proficiency based promotion. Secondary students must score in the 90 percentile in a specific discipline to advance to the next appropriate course. Before a decision is made to advance to the next grade, a team consisting of a parent, administrator, counselor, and teacher will discuss the social and emotional implications as well as the intellectual need of the student.
