Instructions for Administering the Practice Test for the Ohio Ninth-Grade Proficiency Tests.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
A practice test has been prepared to give students experience with test items that are similar to those on the Ohio Ninth-grade Proficiency Tests. The practice test consists of one writing prompt, 20 reading questions, 20 mathematics questions, 25 citizenship questions, and 20 science questions. This manual contains instructions to the teacher, as well as oral directions to be read aloud to the students. The information to be read aloud to students is indented and printed in uppercase letters; instructions to the teacher are in mixed case with regular margins. Directions are organized according to the sequence of the sections in the practice test booklet, but can be used even if the practice test is given in another sequence. The directions are similar, but not identical, to the directions in the actual proficiency tests. In addition to the directions for each section of the practice tests, the manual contains an answer key for the multiple choice sections, a rubric for scoring writing, and a discussion of the relationships to outcomes and subscales for the practice test items.
