This school year Ohio will continue a new generation of computer-based state test in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. These state tests measure student's progress toward Ohio's New Learning Standards. The results show whether students have the knowledge and skills necessary to move successfully to their next steps in education or a career.
State tests are the Ohio Achievement Assessment for 3rd grade reading and the Ohio Graduation Tests for students who entered 9th grade before July 1, 2014. The state tests also include new tests for grades 3-8 and new high school exams, which are required for first-time for the class of 2018-studetns starting grade 9 after July 1, 2014.
Students will solve multi-step problems that require reasoning and address real-world situations, along with allowing students to demonstrate an understanding of concepts and procedures, as well as, carrying out short applications.
