Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT)
Change in OGT Participants
There will be a small number of students attending high school who will take the OGT. Starting with the fall 2017 test administration, most of the OGT will be administered to adults who have completed their high school requirements and those adults who are completing their high school requirements in an institution such as a community college. In both cases, the adults are required to have a photo ID.
Answer Document Tracking
On April 16,
districts will be able to log in to TIDE for OGT
and access the Answer Docs tab for the spring 2018 OGT administration. District test coordinators can download an Excel file that includes all the answer documents that were shipped to the district and school(s), as well as each answer document’s status (e.g., returned as scorable; returned as non-scorable; Do Not Score; not returned; pending). A status of “not returned” indicates that Data Recognition Corporation has not yet processed the answer document or has not yet received the document. Districts are asked to check this report to ensure all answer documents returned for scoring were received and processed. Please contact Data Recognition Corporation if you have questions about this report: 1-877-231-7809 (press 3).
Downloadable data files for the spring 2018 OGT will be posted in the Ohio Online Assessment Reporting System on May 7
