State-Funded SAT Tests

State law requires districts and community schools to administer the state-funded ACT or SAT to all grade 11 students in the spring of the school year. Each year, districts and schools will select the test to administer to their juniors. | Notice to JVSD & ESC superintendents

Annual Survey for District Selection of College and Career Readiness Assessment (ACT or SAT)

On August 18th, each district superintendent, or highest-level school administrator, will receive an email with a survey link to indicate the choice of ACT or SAT. All schools are required to administer a state-sponsored college and career readiness test in spring 2022 to their 11th grade students. Superintendents will choose to administer either the ACT or SAT; all of their 11th grade students will take that test. All choices should be submitted by September 15th when the survey closes.

Because the home districts of students attending joint vocational school districts and educational service centers will select the ACT or SAT test, joint vocational school district and educational service center superintendents will not receive the ACT or SAT selection survey. However, these superintendents can work with local districts, community schools and chartered nonpublic schools to arrange to administer the state-funded college and career readiness tests to students attending their schools. Additional details about collaboration are available here.

All districts should be sure that they contact information including current email address are up to date in both OEDS and with the Ohio-K-12 Help Desk before August 18th to ensure the accurate and timely delivery of the email with the survey link. 
ACT and The College Board (SAT) will contact participating districts in early October with participation details. Districts that will administer the tests online must become vendor-approved testing sites according to steps outlined on each vendor’s website for Ohio.

Please direct questions about the ACT, SAT vendor survey to Michael Reiser.
