DOVER, N.H.—October 9, 2017—The Oklahoma State Department of Education (SDE) has awarded Measured Progress a potential six-year contract for its Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP). The new contract provides yearly assessments based on Oklahoma Academic Standards for grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and mathematics, and for science in grades 5 and 8. This contract continues the strong working relationship between the Oklahoma SDE and Measured Progress, which began in 2013 with the award for the English language arts and mathematics portions of the former Oklahoma College and Career Readiness Assessment program (replaced by OSTP). In 2014 and 2015, the state again chose Measured Progress to support two more programs in the OSTP. Measured Progress worked on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum tests in science, geography, and social studies as well as the high-school End-of-Instruction (EOI) tests.
