Spring 2014 Ohio Online Science and Social Studies Field Tests

11/18/2013

Ohio’s Online Science and Social Studies Field Tests will take place during Spring 2014. These field tests are an integral part of the department’s commitment to developing its next generation assessment program for the following grades and subject courses: 

  • Grades 4 and 6 Social Studies;
  • Grades 5 and 8 Science;
  • High School American Government and American History;
  • High School Biology and Physical Science.

Both chartered nonpublic schools and public schools in the state with students enrolled in the above grades and/or courses may participate in the Ohio Online Science and Social Studies Field Tests. 

The Spring 2014 Ohio Online Science and Social Studies Field Tests are over two test windows. Students participating in the Field Tests must participate in both windows. 

  • March 24 – April 18, 2014:  Part 1, the Performance-Based Assessment (PBA);
  • May 5 – May 16, 2014:  Part 2, the End-of-Year (EOY) test.

At the end of November 2013, chartered nonpublic schools will be sent an email with a survey link to confirm their intent for participation online. Schools not participating in the Field Tests still need to complete the online survey.
