OSTP Paper/Pencil Test Material Shipment

CCRA: Science & U.S. History Paper/Pencil Test Material Shipment
March 6, 2024

Districts will be receiving their paper/pencil testing materials for OSTP Grades 3-8 by March 28, 2024. Please be sure to inventory these materials once received. The materials received are based on the precode data for those students indicated as needing a paper format for online assessments due to a documented IEP, 504 Plan, or EL accommodation. After inventorying the test materials, DTCs may request additional tests through the Materials Management System in the OSTP portal, if needed.

Please note the following:

  • The quantity of Test Preparation Manuals (TPMs) and Test Administration Manuals (TAMs) received by each district is a predetermined amount; additional copies of the TPM and TAMs must be downloaded from the Cognia Oklahoma Help & Support Site: https://oklahoma.onlinehelp.cognia.org/manuals/
  • Parent Student Teacher Guides (PSTGs) for grades 3-5 were shipped for both online testers and paper/pencil testers. PSTGs for grades 6-8 were shipped for paper/pencil tester only. Additional copies of the PSTGs for both grades 3-5 and 6-8 must be downloaded from the Cognia Oklahoma Help & Support Site: https://oklahoma.onlinehelp.cognia.org/parent-student-teacher-guides/
  • If a school within your district did not have any students coded as needing a paper format for the assessment in the precode file, that site will not receive any paper and pencil tests. Please contact the Cognia Oklahoma Service Desk to order materials if needed.
  • Electronic copies of the security checklist for both district and schools will be posted for the DTC to the appropriate district folder on the SFTP site. These files can be used for inventorying and allocating test materials. https://transfer.cognia.org/. If you forgot your username or password, please contact the Cognia Oklahoma Service Desk.
