2019-2020 List of Approved Assessments

The Common Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is a unified process designed to help districts strategically identify vendor assessments for multiple purposes. The Ohio Department of Education has reviewed vendor proposals submitted in response to the RFQ for assessments in the following areas:
  • Comparable Assessments to Ohio’s Diagnostic Assessment for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee (K-3 Diagnostic);
  • Alternative Standardized Assessment for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee (Alt Reading);
  • Alternative High School Graduation Assessments for Chartered Nonpublic Schools (Alt HS);
  • Teacher and Principal Evaluation Component (Growth Measure);
  • Student Survey Instruments for Teacher Evaluation (Student Survey);
  • Gifted Prescreening and Identification.

The RFQ process is not a competitive procurement. All vendor proposals meeting minimum criteria for their assessment areas are listed with the assessments for which they were approved. Please note that some assessments are not approved for all uses at all grade levels or content areas. These assessments can be administered by districts and schools beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.


2018-2019 List of Approved Assessments

The Ohio Department of Education reviewed vendor proposals that were submitted in response to the department’s Common RFQ for assessments for use by Ohio school districts in the following areas:

  • Comparable Assessments to Ohio’s K-3 Diagnostic Assessment for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee
  • Alternative Standardized Assessment for Third Grade Reading
  • Alternative High School Graduation Assessments for Chartered Nonpublic Schools
  • Teacher and Principal Evaluation: Qualifications for Student Assessments to be used by Ohio Districts for a Portion of Teachers’ and Principals’ Evaluations
  • Student Survey Instruments for Use in Teacher Evaluation
  • Identification Instruments for Students Who are Gifted
  • Prescreening Instruments for Students Who are Gifted

This was not a competitive procurement process. All vendor proposals that met the minimum criteria in the Common RFQ are listed below with the assessments for which they were approved. These can be administered by districts and schools beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.


2017-2018 Lists of Approved Assessments

Given the number of concerns raised by districts that already purchased tools for the 2018-2019 school year prior to the release of the new list, the Department will offer a “grace period” for previously approved assessments across all areas covered by the Common RFQ. The Department will allow the use of previously approved assessments for the 2017-2018 school year through June 30, 2019. Districts also can use the newly approved assessments for the 2018-2019 school year. After June 30, 2019, districts can only use the assessments on the new list.
