Submitting Resolution to ODE by May 1, 2019 On Grade 3 Paper Testing for 2019-2020 Information was provided in January 2019 on the provisions of Senate Bill 216, 132nd General Assembly, which allows districts the option of paper or online test administration only for the third-grade state assessments, beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. A survey has been set up to allow you to submit the resolution approved by your board for third graders to take the assessment of English Language Arts or Mathematics or both in paper format.

Do not share this secure link with persons outside your district unless you determine that they are authorized. You DO need to upload a PDF version by May 1, 2019 via this survey if your school board or governing body has decided to administer paper tests to third graders in 2019-2020. You DO NOT need to respond to this survey if you meet one of the following criteria: 1. Your district/school plans to give only online tests to third graders. NOTE : If a district or school continues to administer the tests online, paper accommodations as accessibility features are still available as detailed in Ohio’s Accessibility Manual . A board resolution regarding accommodations is not required. 2. Your school does not test third graders. New OH|ID platform to offer security enhancements Later this spring, the Ohio Department of Education’s SAFE portal will be integrated with the State of Ohio’s digital identity solution, OH|ID. The OH|ID platform will offer to education application users a more secure experience that aligns with the latest in security best practices and offers additional security enhancements like self-service password recovery. To optimize your experience once the new system goes live, ODE encourages you to review and update the information in your current SAFE account. Since your email address will act as your unique identifier and will be used as the login for your OH|ID account, please make sure to update your last name and email address if they have changed. Also remember that OH|ID credentials should never be shared, and every user must have only one OH|ID account.
