Rigorous Reading Test Information to meet Third Grade Reading Guarantee Legislation
The Ohio General Assembly made changes in Senate Bill 21 to the Reading Guarantee. The Ohio Department of Education will distribute detailed guidance on these changes by the end of this month, June 2013. This document outlines the major changes made.
A Summary Report was developed to summarize the findings from each area of the onsite review and sent to the LEA. The summary report identifies findings of individual and systemic non-compliance with IDEA regulations of the LEA.
Recent legislation has changed the way diagnostic assessments (reading, mathematics and writing) are administered and scored. For the first time, districts/community schools will report the results of each student’s diagnostic assessments. The new Third Grade Reading Guarantee will change when and which reading diagnostic assessments are administered.
