Ohio State Testing Information and Important Dates


Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s):

We would like to first thank you for your admiration and perseverance as we all have championed our efforts to make this the best school year possible during a pandemic. Facing challenge, after challenge, we move forward to our next hurdle presented; the Ohio State Test. Beginning the week of April 5th, scholars in grades 3-8 will be completing the in-person Ohio State Test. The assessments will contain a variety of multiple choice questions, extended response questions, and short answer questions that the state of Ohio does not permit schools to administer virtually.

Using a number of various safety practices to keep students and staff safe, assessments will begin promptly at 8:30 am. It is imperative your son/daughter:

  1. Gets plenty of rest during assessment week
  2. Attends school every day, on time.

Attendance is imperative during the month of April.  Any scholars who are absent or tardy on their testing date must make-up the missed assessment. Students entering the building after 8:20 am are considered tardy and will impact their ability to assess on their assigned date. Please ensure your student is dropped off by 8:15 am on their assigned testing date (pick-up is at 1:00 pm). Please see below and save your child’s testing date as a reminder:


UCP OST Testing Hours

Arrival/Drop-Off:  8:00-8:15 a.m.

Grades 3rd, 4th, 5th Reading Testing Date: 4/14/21

Please have conversations with your scholar about the importance of trying your best on rigorous exams such as the OST Assessment.  Please stress the importance of these assessments to your scholar.  If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the school at (216) 361-9720.
