Ohio State Testing Dates
The test dates for each administration are listed below with information that explains the test administration schedule for the state tests. The test administrations listed are for these state tests: the Ohio State Tests in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies (OSTs); the Ohio English Language Proficiency Screener (OELPS); Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA); and Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD). Individual school testing dates may vary within the testing window. Schools will provide families with specific testing dates prior to testing.
Public school districts and community schools are required by law to administer all required state tests to all students enrolled per grade level or course. There is no process allowing parents and/or students to indicate their choices to not participate in state testing. Schools must account for and report any student who did not take a required state test.
