Third Grade Alternative Reading Assessments

2021-2022 Promotion Update

The State Board of Education has voted to set the promotion score of the grade 3 Ohio’s State Test in English Language Arts at 683 for the 2021-2022 school year. Any student who scores 683 or higher on the English language arts scaled score will be eligible for promotion at the end of the year.

In addition, the Ohio Department of Education has set the reading subscore alternative promotion score for the grade 3 English language arts test at 46 for the 2021-2022 school year. Any student who scores 46 or higher on the reading subscore will be eligible for promotion at the end of the year, even if the student scores below 683 on the English language arts test.


The alternative reading assessment is one or more standardized assessments for reading, determined by the Ohio Department of Education for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. It allows a third grade student to demonstrate an acceptable level of reading performance for promotion to the fourth grade. Districts may administer the approved vendor alternative reading assessment twice during the school year and once during the summer to mimic Ohio’s grade 3 English language arts test administration. Districts and schools should set dates for administering these assessments.
