  • Spring 2021 Ohio’s State Online Tests Window Extended

    The Ohio Department of Education today published a new resource to its Reset and Restart Education webpage titled Spring 2021 Testing that provides important information about extension of testing windows as well as practical advice for test administration. Districts first and foremost should be concerned about the safety of students and staff. Assessments should occur only if they can be done safely. Due to technology and test security requirements, there is no option to remotely administer state tests. All testing must be done in person with a test administrator who is an employee of the district with a license, certificate or permit issued by the Ohio Department of Education.

    To provide additional time for districts to administer the state tests, the following updates have been made to the existing windows for online testing:

    • The online administration window of the grades 3-high school English language arts tests has been extended one week and now will run from March 22-April 30.
    • The online administration window of the mathematics, science and social studies tests has been extended one week and now will run from March 29-May 14.

    Because of the additional time required to return, process and score paper tests, the testing windows for paper administration remain the same:

    • The paper administration window of the English language arts tests is unchanged and will run from March 22-April 23.
    • The paper administration window of the mathematics, science and social studies tests is unchanged and will run from March 29-May 7.
    Score reporting will meet the statutorily required deadlines, with results of the grade 3 English language arts test released by June 15 and results for other tests by June 30. More detail on reporting dates will be released as available.
