Ohio Achievement Testing
Each year our students are required to take the Ohio Achievement tests. These tests are required assessments that are aimed at measuring what students are able to do. At the 5th grade level our students are tested in math, reading, science, and social studies. Please be aware that although these tests are administered in 5th grade, your children are being tested over things they have learned from third through fifth grade. It is not solely a 5th grade test. It is a 3-5 test.
According to the Ohio Department of Education's website, the test dates for the 2013 - 2014 school year are from Wednesday, April 23 through Wednesday, April 30, 2014. Once the exact test dates are known that information will be shared with you. A different test will be given each day. It is imperative that students be in school during testing so please arrange doctor's appointments, etc. so your child will not be missing school during this time period.
