Ohio's State Tests

Friday, March 19, 2021
Defiance High School will be administering the ‘Ohio’s State Tests’ from April 6 through April 28.  State achievement tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards. These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, careers and life.  Students in grades 9-12 can take courses during different academic years; therefore students will take the listed End-Of-Course assessments the school year they are enrolled in during the specific course.  The required state tests include: English Language Arts II, Algebra, Geometry, Biology, American History, and American Government.  To help you and your student(s) prepare for the state tests that will be administered, please take a look at your student’s test requirement and testing dates. We strongly encourage students to prepare for the state tests, with proper study, eating, and sleeping.
