Medina's Community Challenge
Take the Challenge by March 1, 2014
What is "The Challenge"?
Get a feel for these new tests in Medina's Community Challenge.
Medina residents ages 18 and older, as well as alumni of Medina City Schools, who complete and comment on all 9 challenges below will have a chance to win a Medina City Schools car magnet--100 available! (Only your opinions about the questions are recorded, not your test question answers!)
If we receive more than 100 entries, winners will be randomly selected in a drawing. (Employees of Medina City Schools are not eligible--they have their own challenge posted in Blackboard.)
Step One: Take each Challenge by clicking on the picture.
Step Two: Give us your opinion of each Challenge.

This is one of the actual testing platforms students will use to take their science and social studies tests.
Additional Testing Information
- Language Arts: Grades 3-11, national PARCC test
- Math: Grades 3-11, national PARCC test
- Science: 5th and 8th grade, Physical Science, Biology, Ohio test
- Social Studies: 4th and 6th grade, American History, Government, Ohio test
All tests will be divided into two parts:
- a multi-day Performance-Based Assessment in March, and
- a multi-day End of Year/Course Assessment in May
Scores from both parts will be combined into one final score. In the first year of administration (2014-2015), we will not get the final scores until the end of summer while the state and PARCC develop cut scores for proficiency.
