PARCC/ODE Testing Info

Attention Parents of Freshmen Students:

The state of Ohio has instituted a new generation of standardized tests for Ohio students, particularly our freshmen. These new tests were developed as a common set of computer-based K–12 assessments in English language arts/literacy, math, science, and social studies. These new assessments are linked to the new, more rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

The state’s goal is to provide greater accountability at all levels for schools, use of 21st century skills in the classroom, and ultimately build for all students’ a clear pathway to college and/or career readiness. Administration of these new tests will occur in the coming weeks of winter and spring.

On January 30, Fairmont High School conducted a practice run of the testing administration process. This involved testing all freshmen in English language arts/literacy.  Each freshman student took a language arts practice test online using Chromebooks. The practice test served to help students become familiar with the new testing procedures and on-line format, as well as expose them to the new Common Core content and question types. In addition, this practice experience assisted our testing staff in evaluating technology capacity, proctoring protocols, and developing troubleshooting strategies. The morning session was problematic. Our technology department made adjustments and the afternoon session was nearly problem free. We are confident our students will have a first class testing environment to take these new tests.
