Ohio Online Assessment Pilot
Caldwell Elementary is participating in the Ohio Online Assessment Practice & Pilot with all 4th grade students completing the 4th Grade Social Studies Assessment in May.

 

Starting in the 2014–2015 school year, the Ohio student assessments will transition to an online testing system. The purpose of the pilot is to provide students, educators, and administrators with an opportunity to experience online testing, become familiar with some technology-enhanced question types, and provide feedback on the online testing experience.

Students’ proficiency in social studies will not be measured during the pilot. The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) is 
not testing students’ knowledge of social studies. Rather, ODE is interested in obtaining students’ feedback about their online testing experiences. A student may use the tutorials and practice test available in the Student/Family section of the OAP Portal to prepare for online testing.

Official student score results (in the form of posted downloadable scores, printed score reports, aggregate

district/building reports, or interactive data) will not be provided for the OAP. Immediately after a student finishes
taking the OAP, he or she will be given a raw score only. The ability to release a student’s score immediately is one of the
many advantages of an online assessment. The student’s score should not and will not be used in any official capacity.

The OAP will include multiple-choice and technology-enhanced questions. The technology-enhanced questions will be interactive and will demonstrate ODE’s intent to adopt more innovative approaches to assessing students. A student may use the tutorials and practice test available in the Student/Family section of the OAP Portal to prepare for online testing. 

All participating students will be asked to complete a survey and provide their feedback after the online test is completed. Students’ feedback is a critical element of the pilot, because this feedback will be used to help formulate the next generation of online assessments.
