Evidence Option: The Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET)

The Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET) is an example of a state assessment that can be used as evidence for component 3.2. A recent Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA) study showed a strong and positive relationship between ACT (nationally normed) and OGET (state normed) tests. CAEP accepts the use of the state assessment as evidence for compliance with component 3.2.
