The Oregon Department of Education released the 2013-14 OAKS (Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) test results for school districts statewide on Wednesday, September 10. The OAKS test is an end of year summative assessment administered to specific grade levels in reading, math, writing, and science. The 2013-14 results show that Corvallis School District students generally outperform the state. However, students with the greatest achievement gaps continue to be the District’s students of poverty, students of color, students where English is their second language and students with disabilities.
