COLUMBUS, Ohio (WYTV) – The Ohio Department of Education announced Monday that student’s won’t be getting out of state-mandated testing, even if it’s interrupted by school delays and cancellations.
Most schools began the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) tests last week. But the schedules have been shuffled around since frigid temperatures have been delaying and even closing schools.
The state is now allowing districts to tack on extra days at the end of the testing window to make up for time missed.
These same guidelines will be allowed for the science and social studies AIR tests that are taken in the first week of March.
