Advocacy Update – 9.19.20 New ODE Approved List of Assessments, Report Card Changes Due to Covid, ODE Gifted Guidance Document

New Approved List of Assessments – ODE has released a new list of approved assessments including those for gifted assessment. They can be viewed at under the “Gifted Assessment Issues.” 

Report Card Changes – Due to the lack of spring testing due to COVID-19, ODE has made many changes to the district report card. One of the changes is to the gifted performance indicator, which will not be included on the report card this year as most of the elements of the indicator (gifted points, gifted value-added, and gifted performance index) were unable to be calculated. For more information, please under the “COVID_19” topic. 

ODE Gifted Guidance Document on Reopening – While the ODE Re-opening page is full of advice on many topics, the gifted guidance document is still listed as “Coming Soon.” When it is available, OAGC will post on the OAGC website. We expect that it will cover a range of topics including remote testing and remote gifted service requirements.
