Collinsville Public Schools Opt Out
 The district is required to test a minimum of 95% of
enrolled students or face sanctions from OSDE. The
OSDE does not recognize the legal right of any
parent/guardian or student to opt out of the
district’s standardized testing program. As a result
the OSDE requires that all students be provided with
appropriate tests pursuant to the district’s testing
program. Any documentation of opting out or
refusal to test will be kept by the district.

Field Testing – From the OSDE
 Why is an item tryout important?
 Newly-developed items must be piloted before they can
be used on a future test in order to ensure quality items
that are valid and reliable.
 Items being piloted are usually embedded within an
operational test, but they can also be administered in a
stand-alone test format when standards have changed
 Oklahoma owns all of its test items, so piloting/trying out
of items is a necessary and standard practice to keep a
healthy pool of new items which will be used to build
future assessments for Oklahoma students.
Field Testing Opt Out
 The OSDE does not recognize the legal right of any
parent/guardian or student to opt out of the
district’s standardized testing program. As a result
the OSDE requires that all students be provided with
appropriate tests pursuant to the district’s testing
 If you choose to Opt your child out of field testing
please go to your child’s school and fill out the Opt
Out Form by May 2.
Transitioning to College and Career Readiness Standards
(Common Core)
 The district has been transitioning to CC for the last 3 years.
 We were required to submit a 3 year transition plan to the
SDE letting the state know what steps we would be taking to
assure we would be completely transitioned by the 20142015 school year.
 Currently we do not know what the 2014-2015 school year
will bring.
Transitioning to College and Career Readiness Standards
(Common Core) - From the SDE
 The 2013 – 2014 school year will be the final year
to test the current Oklahoma Academic Standards
for Reading, Writing, and Math.
 Beginning in 2014 – 2015, Oklahoma will begin
accessing the new standards for College and Career
Readiness in Grades 3 – 8 for English/language arts
(Reading and Writing) and Math.
 Science and Social Studies standards will continue
to be assessed under the current OAS standards.

to require schools to retain students who do not pass a Reading
test and do not meet other criteria for exemptions by the end of

will complete the third grade in 2014.
