Third Grade Alternative Reading Assessments

The alternative reading assessment is one or more standardized assessments for reading, determined by the Ohio Department of Education for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. It allows a third grade student to demonstrate an acceptable level of reading performance for promotion to the fourth grade. Districts may administer the approved vendor alternative reading assessment twice during the school year and once during the summer to mimic Ohio’s grade 3 English language arts test administration. Districts and schools should set dates for administering these assessments.
