WINTER WEATHER-ACHIEVEMENT TESTS
Ohio schools get extra week for achievement tests after cold, snowy weather cancels classes

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 5:10 PM EST
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Ohio's state superintendent is giving schools an extra week to administer required state achievement tests to third- through eighth-graders due to the effects of severe winter weather that has delayed and canceled classes.

Many districts are scrambling to keep pace with classroom topics that students face on the Ohio Achievement Tests starting in April.

Superintendent Richard Ross told members of the state school board Tuesday that the testing window will be expanded from three weeks to four weeks, running from April 21 to May 16.

The timetable for administering the Ohio Graduation Test has not changed.

Many Ohio schools have exhausted their five allowable days off for snow or bad weather. State lawmakers are moving forward with a bill that would allow four additional days away from class this year.
