Assessments

Students must show college and career readiness in order to graduate from high school. There are three different pathways to demonstrate college and career readiness. Regardless of the pathway the student takes, all students are required to take the AIR (end of course exams).

1) AIR (End Of Course Exams)
Students earn a cumulative passing score of 18 points, using seven end-of-course state tests. To ensure students are well rounded, they must earn a minimum of four points in math, four points in English and six points across science and social studies.

End-of-course exams are:
• Algebra I and Geometry
• Biology
• US History and US Government
• English I and English II

2) Industry credential and workforce readiness
Students earn 12 points through a State Board of Education-approved, industry-recognized credential or group of credentials in a single career field and achieve a workforce readiness score on the WorkKeys assessment. The state of Ohio will pay one time for those who take the WorkKeys assessment.

3) College and career readiness tests
Students earn “remediation-free” scores in English language arts and mathematics on a nationally recognized college admission exam. The state of Ohio will pay one time for all 11th grade students in the classes of 2018 and beyond to take either the ACT or SAT free of charge. The student’s district selection applies to all schools in the district for one school year. Test selection may change from one school year to the next.
Current ACT scores: English 18, Reading 22, Math 22
Current SAT scores: Critical Reading 450, Writing 430, Math 520
