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.

on May 7
for districts that returned scorable documents by March 26
and per the instructions in the manuals. Printed reports and interactive data will be available May 17 and May 21, respectively.
