The State Testing Program for Ohio and How It Works: A Primer for Charter Schools. A Report to the PACE School Resource Center.
Germuth, Amy A.
This primer is designed to help charter school leaders in Ohio in coordinating testing and test data reporting procedures as required by state and federal guidelines. The report discusses the roles and responsibilities of charter schools under Ohio's new accountability system and what charter schools need to know to administer the tests of the accountability system effectively. The responsibilities of charter schools regarding testing are outlined, and how charter schools should collect and report data is discussed. Charter schools are increasingly being held to the accountability standards of traditional district schools and are also subject to the requirements regarding student achievement and accountability of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Appendixes discuss the Ohio test development process and contain lists of the state testing dates and testing contacts and information, and a glossary of testing terms. (SLD)
