Release of spring 2019 Ohio’s State Tests items

A release of items from the spring 2019 Ohio’s State Tests in Social Studies now is available in the Ohio’s State Test portal. These items give educators insight into the kinds of questions students experienced, and they are a useful tool to inform classroom instruction. Both teachers and parents may use this resource to help students know what to expect. Included with each released item are the associated learning standard(s) and scoring rubric. Examples of student responses also are available to illustrate actual work and the corresponding points earned on the student examples.
