College- and Career-Readiness Assessments

Students enrolled in 11th grade will be given the College- and Career-Readiness Assessment (CCRA), which consists of two parts. For part 1, each district will choose to administer either the ACT or SAT, including the writing section. Part 2 consists of a Science Assessment which is aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science and a U.S. History Assessment which is aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for U.S. History.

Students are required to take the CCRA during the state testing window.  This assessment will be used for state accountability purposes.

2021 Assessment Graduation Requirements - New 7/15/2020

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the U.S. Department of Education granted a waiver to Oklahoma to forego federally required state tests in grades 3-8 and high school for the 2019-2020 school year. The approval of this waiver provides an exemption to the assessment graduation requirements put forth in 70 O.S. § 1210.508 for students graduating in the 2020-2021 school year who did not have the opportunity to take required assessments in spring 2020 due to the COVID-19 state of emergency.
