Ohio Graduation Test
West Carrollton High School students must pass all parts of the Ohio Graduation Test.
 
What is the OGT?

Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) are a key part of Ohio's education reform to establish an aligned system of standards, assessments and accountability for Ohio schools. The testing requirements ere established by the Ohio General Assembly in 2001 based on recommendations by the Governor's Commission for Student Success. Tests in reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies make up the OGT.

What are the purposes of the Ohio Graduation Tests?

The purposes of the OGT are to:
 
  • Ensure that students who receive a high school diploma demonstrate at least high school levels of achievement;
  • Measure the level of reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies skills expected of students at the end of the 10th grade;
  • Meet federal requirement for high school testing.
 
What time of year do students take the OGT?

Students take the OGT for the first time in the spring of their sophomore year. Students can continue to take the tests in the fall and spring of their junior and senior years and during the summer.

What happens if students don't pass the tests the first time?

Students who do not pass one or more tests on their first attempt will retake the tests they need to pass during their junior and senior years. Ohio Graduation Tests are administered each fall and spring, with an optional summer administration available within some school districts.
