Students have been completing many winter tests and preparing for the Ohio State Tests to be taken in the spring. The Board of Education believes that a program of group testing can provide a meaningful source of information about the adopted curriculum and overall student achievement. Information gained through the use of group tests is used to design educational opportunities for students to better meet their individual and collective needs. The Board views such information gathering as a primary function of the public schools. Individual permission of parents is not required for the administration of these group tests. The Board recognizes that all tests provide only a limited source of information about an individual student. Information drawn from group tests is therefore used only in conjunction with all other information available about a student in advising the student or assisting the student in improving his/her work. Each student with a disability is considered individually as to his/her participation in the testing programs.
