Testing

End of Course Exams

Ohio’s State Tests
Students earn a cumulative passing score of 18 points, using seven end-of-course state tests. To ensure students are well rounded, they must earn a minimum of four points in math, four points in English and six points across science and social studies.

End-of-course exams are: 
• Algebra I and geometry
• Biology
• American history and American government
• English I and English II

Students studying Advanced Placement (AP)  courses in biology, American history or American government may take and substitute test scores for end-of-course state exams to earn graduation points. Students also may substitute grades from College Credit Plus courses in these science and social studies subjects for end-of-course state exams.

ACT

The ACT assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.  The multiple-choice tests measure students’ educational development in English, mathematics, reading, and science.  The tests are based on the major areas of instruction in American high schools and colleges.  The ACT offers an optional writing test which will measure skills in planning and writing a short essay.  The Anthony Wayne counselors recommend that all students take the writing test once.  Students can register on-line at www.actstudent.org

All Anthony Wayne students will take a state administered ACT (without writing)  during the Spring of their Junior Year for free.  In nearly all cases the score from this administration can be used for college admissions.  More details wil be provided in the spring.
