New State Testing Information for Families and Students

Last spring, your child took new state tests in English Language Arts and Mathematics known as PARCC tests. These tests measured how well your son or daughter had mastered the knowledge and skills every student should have in your child’s grade according to Ohio’s Learning Standards.

Ohio has raised its expectations for what your child should know and be able to do in each grade and subject, so every child will graduate from high school better prepared for the next steps in life. Ohio’s Learning Standards now place greater emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving and writing because these are the most important skills today’s colleges and employers expect in our graduates.

The PARCC tests measured your child’s performance on these skills at a deeper level than ever before, so your child’s scores on these tests may look lower than on prior years’ tests. As schools continue to follow Ohio’s Learning Standards, your child will have more chances to build these skills.

We've uploaded resourceful and informative documents to help you understand more about these tests, your child's scores and more. Included with these documents is a letter with more details. Be sure to read the information included on the State Test webpage for students and families on Ohio State Testing, specifically the PARCC tests.
