Testing

The OGT will be given to all sophomores the week of March 10, 2014.  Students who have not passed one or more sections also have the opportunity to take the OGT in October and June.  One test will be given each day, starting with reading, mathematics, writing, science, and social studies.  Each test requires students to write short answers and extended responses as well as complete multiple-choice answers.  Students have a maximum of two and one-half hours for each test. This is the required test for graduation.  More information on the OGT is available at on the Ohio Dept. of Education website education.ohio.gov  The OGT website with resources for students is available here.

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.  The ACT is administered at Anthony Wayne High School.  Applications are available in the Guidance Center or on-line at www.actstudent.org

Anthony Wayne sophomores and juniors may take the PSAT/NMSQT which is given at Anthony Wayne High School each October.  This test, besides being a practice SAT, is the qualifying test that students must take to enter the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) competition.
