Classes of 2016 and 2017 and end of course exams

Students who will graduate in 2016 or 2017 are required to pass the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) or meet the requirements outlined in the Alternative Pathway to Graduation. In order for these students to be in compliance with Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 3301.079(A)(1)(b), these students also take the Ohio American history and government end of course exams.

These end of course exams cover content that includes the Historical Documents as outlined by law.

Class of 2018 and beyond

Students in the class of 2018 and beyond fall under the points system for graduation and take the Ohio created end of course exam for American history and government. The score will count towards graduation points if that is the pathway students choose for graduation.

Advanced placement students - all classes

A student enrolled in Advanced Placement United States history or Advanced Placement United States Government and Politics is exempt from taking state end-of-course tests only if the student takes the AP test. If a student enrolled in either of these courses elects not to take the AP test, the student will be required to take the Ohio test. This graduation FAQ provides a chart and more explanation.
