OHVA Testing

Ohio Required State Testing

Fall State Testing Update

Our 3rd graders tested in October, but parents were able to choose if they wanted their child to participate. Our staff and facilities used were using strict safety measures for all students and proctoring staff.


December End of Course Testing has been cancelled due to rising cases of COVID-19.

All students who were scheduled to test in the high school grades received an email from Testing@ohva.org. All students scheduled to test this fall should plan to attend spring testing. Contact your grade level principal if you have questions. Thank you!

What if my student has an IEP?

Typically students who require testing accommodations in accordance with their IEP may be tested at differing times than the general schedule. Check with your child’s special education teacher for more guidance. OHVA will follow all testing accommodations as required by law.

Don't have transportation? Reach out to family, friends, neighbors to ensure your student participates in state testing. If needed, taxi services like Uber or Lyft can be a help and are not usually as costly as regular taxi services. http://uber.com http://Lyft.com

Build Confidence for Testing!

Expose your student to test practice now to help them be at ease when they sit down to test. Access state practice tests HERE or above, and note some helpful info below.


Did you know that our state tests are done on the computer? Help your student with typing practice below.


Did you know that state test questions often have multiple parts? It's important to help your student become familiar with the format, and they may have to scroll up and down pages to access the parts of a question.


Did you know that students should know how to use a calculator online? These are provided in the tests for 6th grade and up, and may be unfamiliar, so make sure to expose your student to how these work.


Did you know that students can use scratch paper? Just because the test is on a computer does not mean that students should do everything "in their head."


Did you know that your attitude toward testing will positively or negatively impact your student? Do your best to be positive and explain that testing has a purpose, and the student should do his/her best.


Did you know that testing is not a "bubble" test anymore? Your memory of testing in school is not what our students do today! All students are asked to think, reason, write, and explain on state tests. Give them practice with writing out their thinking.

Typing Tutors Online - Prepare for Tech-Based Testing

Students who are publicly e-schooled at home need to master the keyboard. Not only can this be important for daily work, but it's also needed for state testing. Here are some excellent websites to help your students learn to type with accuracy and then with speed: https://www.typing.com/typinglessons and https://www.keybr.com/.
