State Response

Oklahoma noted that the state has conducted a research study that investigated the use of a student’s performance on the Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET) as a measure for the “normed test” criterion in CAEP’s Component 3.2. Specifically, the study was designed to determine if the OGET could be used to establish academic achievement performance that is currently being assessed through the ACT measure. The study produced results that support a strong and positive relationship between ACT and OGET. It was capably performed and provided evidence that the OGET content framework and scoring meet the criterion described in CAEP Component 3.2. Thus, CAEP has accepted the use of the state assessment as evidence for compliance with Component 3.2.

Oklahoma added that when used in isolation, the overall average performance on an exam and grade point average by ALL students enrolled in an institution are not valid/reliable measures for predicting an educator preparation program’s compliance with an admissions policy. Preparation programs, as other do other programs (i.e. business, nursing, etc.), often set admissions standards at a level higher than entrance into the institution and have GPAs above the average for students overall.
