Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests - are a series of tests that make up the Oklahoma School Testing program (OSTP) for the criterion-referenced Grade 3 through 8 and secondary level End-of-Instruction (EOI) tests. We now refer to the state-mandated performance tests as the OCCT 3-8 and EOI tests.
The Oklahoma Core Curriculum Test is intended for the majority of the students. This assessment is given to regular education students, students who are on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 Plan, and English Language Learners (ELL). It may be given either with or without approved accommodations.
The Oklahoma Modiﬁed Alternate Assessment Program (OMAAP) is comprised of assessments developed and administered to meet the federal regulations outlined in Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Speciﬁcally, Title I mandates that “State assessments shall be aligned with the State’s challenging content and student performance standards and provide coherent information about student attainment of such standards.”
The modiﬁed assessments are intended for “gap” students for whom the OCCT assessments are inappropriate. For Grades 3-8, the modiﬁed assessments will provide information on grade level student academic performance in speciﬁed areas of knowledge and skills in Reading, Mathematics, and Science content in relation to PASS based on modiﬁed achievement standards. Likewise, high school End-of-Instruction modiﬁed assessments will provide student performance on the subjects of Algebra I, English II, Biology I, and U.S. History.
