10th Grade

What to Expect:

Students will generally have time for a small break between tests, though food and drink will not be provided during this time. Parents and guardians are free to stay at the testing site throughout the day, or they may leave and return to pick up their student after testing has been completed.

ID Requirements:

Photo Identification is required for all testing students. Accepted forms of photo ID are shown here http://www.actstudent.org/faq/answers/id.html A state ID (obtained at most tag agencies) or notarized statement (obtained at many banks) are often the easiest to obtain.

Your Teacher May Upload Your Photo to EpiCenter

Your information will be saved and made available to testing coordinators. This is the easiest way for us to verify students who may not have another form of identification. Please discuss this with your teacher.

Test Dates & Locations:

Students are required to test at their predetermined test sites. In most cases, students have been assigned tests at a location nearest to their home.

Online Test Simulation:

The link below will take you to a simulation of the online tests. This is ONLY a simulation and not scored in any way at all. Again, this is not a practice test…

IEP Students:

Testing accommodations for standardized tests will be noted in the IEP as determined by the multidisciplinary team. *** Students are not required to take an EOI if they haven’t taken the course.

OCCTs (3rd-8th)

About the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests

Often called the OCCTs, these tests are administered during the spring of each year – usually April. These tests are mandated by the State of Oklahoma and focus on core curriculum standards. Required of all Epic Charter Schools students in grades 3-8.  Oklahoma mandates all students grades 3-8 take tests appropriate to their grade level. Epic will administer these tests at multiple locations throughout the state. Below is a list of locations with dates and grades being tested.

What to Expect:

The tests are split between pencil & paper tests, and online tests. Most tests are scheduled for 90-120 minutes, though actual finish times vary from student to student. Students will generally have time for a small break between tests, though food and drink will not be provided during this time. Parents and guardians are free to stay at the testing site throughout the day, or they may leave and return to pick up their child after testing has been completed.

ID Requirements:

After inquiring with the State Department, student ID requirements for our younger students have been relaxed. Here are the 3 options available:

  • Any form of government issued ID (such as a military ID or driver’s license).
  • For students in grades 3-9, parents may sign the student in.
  • Or, your teacher may upload your photo to EpiCenter.

Test Dates & Locations:

Students are required to test at their predetermined test sites. In most cases, students have been assigned tests at a location nearest to their home.

Updated Parent, Student, Teacher Guides for all OCCTs will be available soon. In the meantime, please use the links sorted by grade level below.
