Districts and community schools must administer a state-funded college and career readiness tests to juniors in spring 2017 as one of their three diploma options. Each district and community will choose to either administer the state-funded ACT or SAT college and career readiness tests. Click here for test dates and more information.
2016 was the last year a paper option was required to be made available. The following procedure has been developed to facilitate districts requesting exceptions to online testing to be administered in Spring 2017. For more information click here.
Test coordinators and test administrators will want to carefully review two updated resources for spring 2016 state testing — the Test Coordinator’s Manual and Directions for Administration Manual. The Test Administration Web page at education.ohio.gov provides descriptions and links to these and other resources — such as guidance documents, practice resources and tutorials — posted on the Ohio’s State Tests Portal.
