End of Course Exam

Summer 2019 Testing Opportunity

The results of the Ohio’s State Tests/End of Course Exams for Spring 2019 test window were recently released, and although individual student reports are not yet ready for distribution, we have received the initial results for VCHS students.   These exams are an important component of Ohio’s high school graduation requirements so it is very important that students earn proficient (or higher) scores. **

To obtain preliminary information about how a student performed on the Ohio’s State Tests this spring, parents/guardians and students may request information by contacting Amie Ward, VC High School Secretary, at 740-596-5258.  (A formal report will be given to students at the start of school.)

Any students who received below a “proficient” score in ELA I, ELA II, or Algebra I should consider the summer testing opportunity.  This will consist of a morning “prep session” designed to cover key strategies and information needed for the test, followed by the actual test.  It is our hope that this focused intervention and testing will enable students to earn higher scores.  Below please find the dates and subject tested:

English Language Arts I or II                                Algebra I

Tuesday, July 16                                                 Thursday, July 18

Test Prep 9:00 am – 11:30 am                               Test Prep 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Testing 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm*                                Testing 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm*

*This is the maximum time for testing; students may complete their testing prior to the end time. 


If you wish to sign your student up for one or both of these test dates, please reserve a spot by contacting Amie Ward, VCHS Secretary, at 740-596-5258 or amie.ward@vc-k12.usSpace is limited; reservations are required.


**Students who plan to complete a Career Technical program, including all related credentialing, may not be required to earn the minimum proficient scores on these tests if they meet the career tech/credentialing and Work Keys requirements.
