OAE Technical Reports

Development and Validation Technical Report

The Development and Validation Technical Report describes the activities undertaken to provide validity evidence that supports the use of the assessments included in the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) program and provides information to support the validity of score interpretations. The report is intended for policy makers, state educators, and other interested stakeholders who would like to learn more about

  • the purpose, structure, and composition of the OAE testing program;
  • the assessment frameworks (i.e., test competencies) and test item validation processes;
  • the content and bias review processes; and
  • the establishment of Ohio passing standards.

As new assessments are added to the program, their corresponding validation evidence will be appended to the report.
