Standardized Testing


Each fall as a best practice, we conduct diagnostics to gather baseline data on each learner. This allows us to appropriately match instruction and personalize learning. The State of Ohio requires such state approved diagnostic testing before September 30th of each year to be reported indicating whether a child is “On Track” or “Not on Track” according to the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. These data results guide districts in what they are required and should provide to make sure that students who face challenges learning to read receive the help they need.

At Greater Summit County Early Learning Center District (SCOPE PRIMARY) we administer ODE Diagnostic Testing and Local ODE approved assessments each Fall prior to September 30th in the following ways:

Ohio’s State Standardized KRA Literacy for Kindergarten

Ohio’s Grade 1, 2, 3 Diagnostic Assessments in Reading, Writing, and Math

DRA (Developmental Reading Assessments)
