The End of Course Assessment Project has resulted in body of assessment
items, both selected and constructed response for algebra, geometry,
biology and physical science that are tightly aligned with the 2007 and
2007 Oregon Learning Standards. These assessment items can be utilized
in the development of end of semester examinations or can be used for
creating a rigorous and challenging credit recovery assessments.
Combined with a set of performance tasks, these items can be used to
create credit by proficiency assessments.
Lead teachers from four area high schools have worked over a two year
period to design and field test these items. The items have been
reviewed by national consultants for quality and content rigor.
