Testing Under Way Across District

The Kettering City School District joins districts across the state in commencing with the administration of standardized testing to students in grades 3-11. Kettering teachers have been hard-at-work teaching and Kettering students have been hard-at-work learning...and we are confident that our students are prepared for the tests.

Parents are asked to encourage your children to get a good night's sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast the morning of testing.

Freshman Parents

February 20, 2015

Dear Parents,

Beginning the last week of February, students at Fairmont will take the first round of new state tests mandated by the state of Ohio. These new assessments replace the Ohio Graduation test (OGT) and are designed to measure student progress toward Ohio’s new learning standards. This year’s freshmen students will take exams in English, Algebra or Geometry, Integrated Science, and American History. Also, new graduation requirements (Ohio House Bill 487) are in effect for the first time for freshmen.

Each new state test has two parts:

“Performance-Based” (PBA) Assessment

February 26-27, March 3-6, 10-11, 16-18

Use of important skills like problem solving, advanced reasoning and analysis will be measured as students apply classroom concepts to real-world situations.

“End-of-Year” (EOY) Assessment:

May 4-8, 11-14

Students will demonstrate their acquired skills and knowledge by answering computerbased, machine scorable questions. Results will measure what students were able to learn, retain and apply throughout the course.
