“With new test score standards that state education officials believe are more in line with national standards, the majority of Oklahoma students lack proficiency in all but one subject area tested," The Oklahoman reported when the latest Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP) scores were released.

To comply with the student privacy protections of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the following redaction rules have been applied: Redact all proficiency categories if the total n size is <10; if the n size is >10, redact proficiency categories with ≤3 students; if one proficiency level is redacted, an additional proficiency level must be complementarily suppressed to not unintentionally reveal a redaction; if one proficiency percentage is 100%, then an additional category will need to be redacted as to not reveal that there are zero in other categories; if the sum of the n size of two categories is equal to the total n, an additional category will need to be redacted as to not reveal that there are zeros in other categories. All redacted cells display asterisks.
