Ohio Graduation Tests

Current law requires students who first enrolled in grade 9 before July 1, 2014, to take the Ohio Graduation Tests. At this time, these students primarily are those who are in the classes of 2016 and 2017, or 11th- and 12th-graders in the 2015-2016 school year. Due to legislative changes, these are the last students who must pass all five parts of the Ohio Graduation Tests to receive high school diplomas. 

The Ohio Graduation Tests are based upon Ohio's Learning Standards, which the State Board of Education adopted in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. These standards were designed to ensure that students are armed with the knowledge they need to be successful in higher educational pursuits as well as the jobs and careers of the future.
