Social Studies 6 State Test Resources
Note: HB 49 (Ohio's Budget Bill), signed by Governor Kasich on June 30, 2017, immediately eliminates Ohio’s State Tests in social studies for grades 4 and 6. The bill also requires that each district or school teach and assess social studies in at least the fourth and sixth grades. A district or school can choose its own assessment, which can be either formative or summative. They are not required to report results to the Ohio Department of Education. The resources below will remain posted for teachers to use for instructional and assessment purposes.
This tool provides with an opportunity to use the online assessment system provided by AIR. Students have access to released questions and can practice responding to various types of questions with available tools.

Answer Keys and Scoring Guides for Released Test Items
The documents below are provided by AIR and the Ohio Department of Education following the release of a portion of the test items each year. The documents provide answers, rubrics, and sample scored student responses.
The Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) are the link between Ohio’s Learning Standards and performance standards. They were developed by Ohio educators and other content experts to recommend the most appropriate implementation of content and skills for Ohio’s State Tests for Social Studies as part of the Standard Setting process.
This document provides the test blue print, performance-level descriptors, test item specifications, and sample test items, organized by standard and content statement. 
Video tutorials, interactive review games, and practice assessments for each learning target
These practice assessments in Edcite allow teachers to provide practice assessments that are automatically scored. Teachers can copy these assessments to their own account to score constructed responses and track student data.
