Oregon - Student Assessments: Assessment Authority

Area: 
Assessment Authority
Policy Type: 
Statute
Summary: 

The Department of Education and Board of Education share authority over the adoption of assessments.

Body: 
  1. Department "implements" the assessments. It goes along with what I stated about the SBE deciding the "best practices," and supports your thought that the Dept. has power.  However, neither says that the Dept. or SBE has "authority."
  2. it is not exclusively SBE. They adopt “guidelines.”
Implementing Authority: 
State Department of Education
