You’re kind of a big deal. Don’t believe me? 

Ask the students and teachers of Edgewood City Schools who would like to thank you for all of the work you did to prepare us for the PARCC online testing and the ODE online testing! 

Last month select students of EHS participate in the PARCC on-line field assessment. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and their careers. These high quality, computer-based K–12 assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy give teachers, schools, students, and parents better information whether students are on track in their learning and for success after high school, and tools to help teachers customize learning to meet student needs.

The Edgewood students and teachers did a great job!  They were all patient and persistent.
Thank you to the following teachers for "volunteering" to proctor the field test. 
Rachael Anderson
Tracy Umbstead
Lindsay Horan
Linda Porter
Betty Gambrell
Virginia Mangino
Kevin McDonell

Ohio students are scheduled to begin taking the PARCC test in the 2014-2015 school year.  PARCC has recently published the the 2013/14 practice tests.  You will need to click on the fifth tab to view the assessments. 

Starting in the 2014-2015 school year, the state assessments in Ohio will transition to an online testing system for Science and Social Studies. This week select students of EMS participated in the ODE Science and Social Studies online field test.  

You can take a practice test here. (Sign in as "guest" "guest".)

The Edgewood Field tests were successful due to the behind-the-scene preparation of Chris, Effie, and Chris.  If you see them in the hall you may want to give them a great big Cougar smile!

  1. I hope everyone gets on here and does a practice test. It is amazing what the kids are being asked to do.
