Updated bilingual English/Spanish version of practice and released test items

8/5/2019

A new English/Spanish bilingual version will be available for practice tests and released test questions in all Ohio’s State Tests for mathematics, science and social studies. English language arts items are not translated.

Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, there is a new toggle function replacing the stacked-form format of the bilingual test. The function allows students to switch between English and Spanish forms by clicking a button. When toggling between languages, the testing system maintains all student responses and the approximate place on the page.

Beginning with the fall 2019 tests, the toggle function will be available for all bilingual test forms. To give students an opportunity to use the new function, all practice tests and released test questions in all Ohio’s State Tests in mathematics, science and social studies will be updated to include the toggle. They will be available for use in the Ohio’s State Tests portal at the end of August.
