Nearly 1,700 members of Oregon's high school Class of 2012 were allowed to graduate, even though they did not pass the state's standardized reading test as required for the first time. English-language learners and students with disabilities made up a large portion of the students who used an alternative assessment to graduate. The state will collect data for at least another year before examining the validity of alternative assessments that are used to show students can read, said Derek Brown, who oversees graduate assessments for the state.
