Neiner, Christine M.; And Others
The Ohio sixth-grade proficiency test is intended to measure a student's literacy level and basic competency in writing, reading, mathematics, citizenship, and science. This guide is designed to help parents prepare their fifth- and sixth-grade children for this proficiency test. An introduction, "Important Information," outlines three types of questions that appear on the test--multiple choice, short answer, and extended response--along with guidelines and rules for test-taking. Sample answer pages from the practice test are also given. Practice sections cover the following areas: (1) Writing; (2) Reading; (3) Math; (4) Citizenship; (5) Science; and (6) Test-Taking Strategies. A day-by-day listing of tips for the week of proficiency testing is also included. (BGC)
