Release of English Language Arts I and II sample tests


Full-length sample tests for Ohio’s State Tests for English Language Arts I and II now are available in the Student Practice Site of Ohio’s State Test portal. The tests are comprised of released test items. Each sample test reflects the length of the operational test, meets blueprint expectations and is of similar difficulty. These sample tests give educators insight into the kinds of questions students experience. The tests are a useful tool to inform classroom instruction. Both teachers and parents can use this resource to help students know what to expect on state tests. 
Included with each sample test item are the associated learning standard(s) and scoring guides. Examples of student responses also are available to illustrate actual work and the corresponding points earned on the student examples.

Along with the release of sample tests, the Department is making available new English language arts resources for students and teachers.
