Readiness Assessments extended through 2024


Ohio's schools and districts have faced extraordinary challenges planning academic instruction in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Ohio Department of Education is providing assessment tools and resources to districts in support of the delivery of educational services through the 2023-2024 school year.

The Department, in conjunction with Cambium Assessment, Inc., is providing a suite of optional online assessments for educators to use in grades 3 through high school. The Readiness Assessments, available for English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies, are designed to help schools and districts identify student progress early and receive actionable performance data. These assessments, which may be offered remotely, will be administered using systems with which Ohio educators and students are familiar from the administration of Ohio’s State Tests.
