The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) conducted an achievement standards verification process for the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills for Mathematics on August 9-11, 2010. The research-based Bookmark Procedure was used to recommend achievement standards (cut scores) for Grades 3–8 and high school. ODE contracted with the Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC) to serve as external evaluators who monitored the process and documented evidence of validity for both the process and the results. This document summarizes the resulting recommendations and EPIC’s evaluation results.
