 Students may log in as a guest to access any of the practice tests. Half-length practice tests are available for each of the high school end of course exams in English language arts. Practice test items allow students to become familiar with the online test environment by showcasing the different item types, features, and functionality available to students during online testing.

 

Algebra I

Ohio's Practice Test - Students may log in as a guest to access any of the practice tests. Half-length practice tests are available for each of the high school end of course exams in mathematics. Practice test items allow students to become familiar with the online test environment by showcasing the different item types, features, and functionality available to students during online testing.

Teachers can review released test items to determine the level of mathematical reasoning needed for success. This analysis can help teachers examine their local curriculum to see if their instruction is providing students enough opportunities to take their mathematical understanding to a deeper level.

Practice Test Answer Key and Scoring Guidelines - The Practice Test Answer Key and Scoring Guidelines for Algebra 1 provides answer keys and scoring guides for this test. It includes the item type, the content standard and content statement assessed, an answer key (for some item types) and the number of points associated with each item. They also include the guidelines for scoring (i.e., scoring rubrics), sample responses and notes on scoring and rationales that describe why response options are correct or incorrect.

PERFORMANCE LEVEL DESCRIPTORS

The Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) are the link between Ohio’s Learning Standards and performance standards. They were developed by Ohio educators and other content experts to illustrate the typical demonstration of the learning for each of the five performance levels: Limited, Basic, Proficient, Accelerated and Advanced. Teachers can review the PLDs for each course to match each descriptive statement with its course standards. Teachers can then review local curriculum materials to see if opportunities are being given to students to demonstrate deeper conceptual understanding of course content at the different performance levels. 

The Ohio Department of Education has released a set of test specification documents, including descriptions of the assessment components and item types, assessment blueprints, and item specifications, to help educators and the general public better understand the design of Ohio's State Tests. These documents are used to guide the development of the Ohio's State Tests for Mathematics.
