About the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests: OCCT Tests: 3rd Grade – 8th Grade
The Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests are aligned to Oklahoma’s Priority Academic Student Skills, known as OK PASS skills, which define what students should learn each year. OCCT tests are given as follows:

3rd, 4th, and 6th Grades: OCCT tests in reading and math
Fifth Grade: OCCT tests in reading, math, writing, science, and social studies
Seventh Grade: OCCT tests in reading, math, and geography
Eighth Grade: OCCT tests in reading, math, writing, science, and U.S. History

High School: OCCT End-of-Instruction Tests

Oklahoma high school students take OCCT End-of-Instruction (EOI) tests in algebra I, algebra II, English II, English III, geometry, biology I, and U.S. history upon completion of each course. In order to graduate from a public high school with a standard diploma, students must pass the English II and algebra I tests, as well as two of the other five tests. Oklahoma also teaches personal financial literacy, and as a requirement for graduation, students must demonstrate satisfactory knowledge of such topics as credit card debt, saving money, and understanding loans, among the 14 areas of finance instruction.

How OCCT and Oklahoma EOI Tests Are Scored
The Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests and OCCT End-of-Instruction Tests are standards-based, criterion-referenced tests that measure how well students have mastered the challenging Oklahoma state standards (OK PASS skills). The OCCT tests and Oklahoma EOI tests report student achievement in each subject using the following four levels:

1. Advanced
2. Satisfactory
3. Limited Knowledge
4. Unsatisfactory

The goal is for all Oklahoma students to score at or above the satisfactory level. If your child scores below the satisfactory level, ask your school for additional assistance, and find out what you can do at home to support learning.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
