Certain Ohio State Tests results available as early as May 10

3/14/2022

In response to district and stakeholder feedback, the Ohio Department of Education is announcing early reporting of certain Ohio State Tests results for spring 2022.

The Department and Cambium Assessment have worked to accelerate the timeline for reporting preliminary results for mathematics, science and social studies tests administered online. These results will be available in the Centralized Reporting System (CRS) beginning May 10.

With early reporting, districts have the benefit of receiving actionable data before the end of the school year. This can aid in decision-making for graduation, summer testing notification and intervention programs, evaluation of student progress and planning for the following school year.

Be aware that aggregate test results, such as those for class, school, district and state, will reflect only currently reported results. These results will update throughout the spring reporting window as other results become available.

Preliminary results for mathematics, science and social studies paper tests will be accessible in CRS June 20.

Due to the scoring process of writing items on the English language arts assessments, the preliminary results of these tests will be reported as follows:

  • Grade 3 English language arts online and paper tests: June 15
  • Grades 4 through high school English language arts online and paper tests: June 20

The Department will release late batch and breach test results June 24.

As a reminder, scores may change after initial release for many reasons, including rescores and appeals. Districts handle reporting final data to the Department using the Education Management Information System (EMIS). For these reasons, score data in CRS should be considered preliminary just as they have been in previous years.

The Department will continue to evaluate early reporting of preliminary test results to determine future release schedules.
