Oregon Administrative Rule #21-030 prescribes the following limitations on administration and use of tests in public schools:

  1. Tests shall not be used as the sole criterion for placement of students in educational groups or tracks.  
  2. Administration of individual intelligence tests and all tests of personality require written parental or guardian permission prior to testing.
District-wide assessments will include norm-referenced tests of reading and mathematics.
Ideally, these tests will be administered as follows:
  • Reading and mathematics      Grades K-8  (Fall, Winter, Spring)
  • Reading and mathematics      Grade 9    (Fall, Winter, Spring)
This program should be considered minimum and should not prevent buildings from using appropriate norm-referenced, diagnostic or criterion-referenced tests.
