State Board adopts promotion score for 2014-2015 Third Grade Reading Guarantee

7/28/2014

The Third Grade Reading Guarantee requires that third-graders must show a level of proficiency on the Ohio Achievement Assessment in order to be promoted. Law requires the State Board of Education to raise the cut score for promotion each year the third-grade English language arts assessment is given until it reaches the proficient level. As a result, the State Board adopted 394 as the promotion score for 2014-2015. This is an incremental increase from last year’s 392.
