Measure how students are learning and progressing through the standards.
Assessment is a term educators use when describing many of the ways they learn about their students’ school progress. Assessments that school districts give include traditional tests, but also include classroom activities that help teachers determine when each student needs additional help or practice, and when he or she is ready to move ahead in the learning process.
Ohio’s State Tests measure how students statewide are developing the knowledge and skills described in Ohio’s Learning Standards in a selected number of subject areas. The test results also help measure each public school’s performance, which is reflected on its annual Ohio School Report Card.
Students in grades 3 through 8 and high school take Ohio’s State Tests in English language arts and mathematics. Periodically in middle and high school, these students also take state tests in science and social studies. More information about Ohio’s State Tests is here.
