Parent information on upcoming assessments

As you may be aware, the state has adopted new Learning Standards for Ohio school districts. PLSD has invested a great deal of time translating those standards into a high-quality curriculum for our students. Beginning with this school year (2014-15), Ohio’s state assessments will also change from the traditional Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) and Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) to what are now referred to as Next Generation Assessments. These Next Generation Assessments more closely align with the new Learning Standards and our curriculum. The new assessments also encourage students to use the critical thinking skills necessary to prepare them for college and career. Below is an overview of the plan for assessments.
