Ohio State Test Graduation Requirement

 

As part of the new graduation requirements, ODE has established a system for students to accumulate graduation points based on 7 state tests for graduation: English I, English II, Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology, US History, and Government. In addition to the district and state requirements for students to earn 21 course credits, students also need to earn a minimum of 18 graduation points on 7 State tests. This chart shows each test along with minimum scores needed in each area.

 

Students and Parents can see current student scores in Powerschool by clicking on the Graduation Pathways tab on the left and then by clicking on Ohio State Tests in the center. Use this chart to fill in and assess student progress.

 All test points scored 1 through 5

 

Algebra 1:     1    2    3    4    5

Geometry:     1    2    3    4    5

Minimum score needed in Math must be a 4 or higher 

Math Total: _____/4      

 

ELA I:       1    2    3    4    5

ELA II:        1    2    3    4    5 

Minimum score needed in English must be a 4 or higher

Total Score: Students must have the minimum score in each area: English (4), Math (4), Science/Social Studies (6) PLUS 4 additional points in any area for a minimum Total Score of at least 18.

 

Students in the class of 2020 only will have additional graduation pathways that they can use if they have not met the minimum total point requirement by the beginning of their senior year. HHS counselors will assist in developing an individual plan with each student that requires an alternative graduation pathway.

 

All students may meet their Ohio State Test requirements by earning points as shown above. Additionally, the state allows students to meet this requirement by earning remediation free scores on the ACT: 18 English, 22 Reading, 22 Math or SAT: 430 Writing, 450 Reading, 520 Math scores OR by receiving 12 Industry Credentials plus a minimum score of a 14 on the WorkKeys test. HHS students can best take advantage of this third option through attending a Career Center during high school.
