Ohio Restart Readiness Assessment Portal, benchmark tests and reporting resources now available

8/17/2020

The Ohio Restart Readiness Assessment Portal is available to districts and schools today. The portal contains links to the new benchmark tests, the new Centralized Reporting System and associated resources for each.
 
The Benchmark Tests are full-length assessments utilizing released test items that mirror content and test characteristics of Ohio’s State Tests in terms of length, test specifications, blueprints and tools available to students. Benchmark Tests are machine-scored, allowing for near real-time reporting to give teachers rapid access to results and use the same testing platform familiar to students and educators.
 
Results are reported in a new, innovative reporting system—the Centralized Reporting System. Ohio educators are already familiar with the data this system provides such as performance levels and item-level data. New features include a view of students’ actual work and responses to each test item, the ability to score items and access to data to pinpoint improvement areas throughout the school year. This system is available to districts and schools for the Restart Readiness Assessments.
 
Resources for each benchmark test, as well as the Centralized Reporting System, are available on the portal. Additional resources, as well as the new checkpoint assessments, will be available later this month.
