Oklahoma Educational Planning and Assessment System (EPAS)

Check out the Guide to Understanding the EXPLORE Score Report and Understanding Your Child's PLAN Score Report.

Oklahoma EPAS (OK EPAS) is based on ACT's Educational Planning and Assessment System, an integrated series of assessments and reporting services that supports educators as they help students set and reach goals for life after high school. The components of OK EPAS are EXPLORE, PLAN and the ACT Assessment. EPAS assessments provide information about academic progress at crucial points in a student's educational career -- eighth grade, 10th grade and at the completion of high school. Information provided by EPAS assessments is linked longitudinally to provide an academic information management system. These linkage reports can be used to monitor student progress over time, detect trends and evaluate instructional outcomes in support of school improvement efforts.

Oklahoma EPAS helps teachers, counselors, and school administrators do their jobs effectively. The system provides services in four interrelated areas: student planning, instructional support, assessment and program evaluation.
