State Testing 2021

Gilles-Sweet Elementary: 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Ohio State Tests

Ohio State achievement Tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards.  These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, careers, and life.  Test results also allow citizens to know how their local schools are performing compared to others around the state.  Testing time is here again.  By helping your child become physically and mentally prepared, you are helping them lower any feelings of test anxiety.  Test anxiety is a very common experience; however, with some preparation, it can be reduced and improve their performance.  

Please help your son/daughter prepare by:

  • Getting an adequate night’s sleep (8-10 hours) 
    • Wake up on time to avoid rushing and arrive to school on time
    • Eat a nutritious breakfast
    • Reminding them to listen closely to all directions and read directions carefully
    • Answer questions they know first, and come back to the harder questions later 
  • Arriving to school with a fully charged iPad and the charging cord

When your child feels confident in their test taking skills, they will have less text anxiety and be able to focus on doing their best and showing what they have learned.  The testing schedule is as follows:
