The Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) are annual tests used to measure a student's mastery of the state's grade-level academic standards.
Students are assessed in reading and math in grades 3 through 8 and 10, and in writing in grades 4, 7 and 10.
Students are scored at one of five levels: exceeds, meets, nearly meets, low, or very low. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed the state standards. All scores >95% are reported as 96% and scores <5% are reported as 4%.
