Foreign Language Audio Format

The Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA) and the Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) are available in a foreign- language CD format for the Fall OGT and the Spring OAA and OGT administrations for eligible English Language Learners (ELLs), formerly known as limited English proficient. The languages provided are determined using the number of requests for translators per language.

The purpose of the foreign-language CD format is to provide a standardized word-by-word translation of allowable parts of the tests to assist districts in providing the read-aloud accommodation in the student’s native language for eligible ELLs. On the reading test, the reading passages are not recorded; the directions, questions and answer choices are recorded in the specific language.

The OAA released tests in the foreign-language format are listed below by content area.
