Section 1: Overview of Ohio Online Assessment Reporting System
Identifying Students’ Instructional Needs
The OGT data provide a snapshot of how current Grade 11 students and students who need to retake the OGT performed on the spring OGT. You can tailor instructions for three groups of students:
- Those who have taken the OGT and passed;
- Those who have taken the OGT and need to retake it;
- Those who have yet to take the OGT
Discuss the results with colleagues and consider how to target specific needs as you continue working with your students.
Grade 9 and Grade 10 Teachers: You may find it helpful to discuss the school’s past performance on the OGT. Specifically, you may be interested in the subjects and content standards that caused difficulty for students who took the recent OGT. Once these areas are determined, you can become proactive in your instruction and in preparing your students for their first OGT.
Grade 11 and Intervention Teachers: You may find it helpful to discuss the school’s past performance on the OGT as a whole while looking at individual student performance. Understanding past performance allows you to consider your students’ learning needs and address them appropriately.
