Lake Local teachers and administrators are prepping for a change in the state tests for this spring. The Ohio Department of Education is no longer allowing the district to assess students with the paper and pencil versions of the state achievement tests. Our teachers and administrators are putting plans in place to assist students in becoming more comfortable with the new testing conditions, and to practice with this type of testing.
Students in grades 3-12 will be tested at some point during the testing window. The testing window begins in March and will be completed by mid-May. The state achievement tests are approximately 90-105 minutes in length, depending on grade level and content area.
Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about these tests. As with any new situation, there will be a learning curve. We do not want students to become upset or anxious because of these changes.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the spring testing, please contact Jodi Takats at firstname.lastname@example.org.
