Elementary School News

Ohio will soon replace its Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) with new end-of-course exams that better measure whether students will be ready for college or a position in the workforce.

This year, most Ohio students in grades 3-8 will take a new and different set of state achievement tests that are based on Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Both the standards and new tests reflect higher expectations for what students should know and be able to do in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The new tests also will better measure what students have learned and what they can do with their knowledge.

In grades 3-8 math, the new state tests will replace the Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA).

Parents and students will report directly to classrooms on Back-2-School night.
