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.

Open Quote I don't know the situation of the person's rating above, especially since his experience was from 2 years ago, but my experience with Jarman this year (11-12) has been nothing short of exceptional. The 8th grade teachers are caring, involved, supportive people that go the extra mile to help their students. I have been kept in the loop of all aspects of the educational experience - grades, behaviors, social, all of it. I have not only experienced it with the 8th grade teachers, I have experienced it with 6th grade teachers, counselors and administrators, basically everyone that has contact with students. I have been there on several Saturdays where teachers show up to help with school beautification. We just experienced teachers, janitors, administrators, counselors, etc. spend a Saturday at the school for a carnival for the community. These teachers care. These teachers are dedicated. These teachers have committed their lives to their students and for that I am grateful. There is no better place to send your chid than to Jarman Middle School. Close Quote

Open Quote Honestly, I've never been more disappointed in a school than I currently am with Jarman Middle School. I am in the U.S. Air Force and due to my many assignments, my son is now in his fourth different school district. He's a good kid, a straight "A" student, and he stays out of trouble, so this isn't one of those reviews that "blames my kids problems on someone else". I'm very hard on him and accept nothing but the best on a daily basis.

All of that being said, I can tell you that he's not been happy since the day he started this school. He has plenty of friends, so it isn't a social problem. He's very frustrated because his 8th grade teachers do not act as if they care at all about the students. They teach the required curriculum, collect their paychecks, and go home. If any additional information or instruction is requested, it is given with a berating attitude and minimal details. Again, it's more like "I've done my job, now go figure the rest of it out yourself."

Thankfully, my wife and I stay involved and are educated enough to assist him with most of his problems, but there's also a ethical requirement for teachers to ensure students have a grasp of the daily lesson along with providing additional instruction to those that are striving for a greater understanding of the material.

If this isn't enough, you should have seen how we were treated during our Parent/Teacher conference. They seemed appalled at the fact we asked questions about their method of instruction and teacher/student interaction. We weren't questioning their ability, we just wanted information to pass along to our son so he could get most out of his classes and provide the proper feedback to his teachers. It was at that exact moment that I was able to understand how my son felt. I'm 39 years old and I've served in the military for more than 20 years but his teachers still wanted to make sure that I felt beneath them. It didn't work, it just showed a lack of self-confidence and personal happiness on their part.

Stay away from Jarman Middle School. Close Quote

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.
