Ohio schools are moving toward online assessments for their students which include interactive assessment items. These interactive assessment items have been enhanced by technology and in order for students to successfully complete these online assessments, they will need to be able to perform many technology tasks including: click/tap, scroll, plot points, drag/drop, type with text editor, select object, select text, use video player, select area, drag/slide, deselect, highlight, use ruler, use calculator, use protractor.

It is crucial for students to be proficient using these technological skills before taking the online assessments. The purpose of these assessments is not to assess their technological capabilities, but their knowledge of the content area subject matter.


enlightenedOnline Rulers: Students will need to be able to use a interative ruler for the math assessment. The resources on this page give students practice using a ruler and measuring objects with that ruler.
