Sylvania Schools is dedicated to ensuring that each student is able to succeed on state tests. This means that each student should be able to focus on the content of the test, rather than worrying about the technology tools it requires. These resources will help students master the technology tools so they can succeed.
Sylvania Schools has produced a series of tutorial videos that junior high and high school teachers will use in the classroom to help students master skills necessary to succeeding on Ohio’s New State Tests. These videos take students through practice tests and tutorials to demonstrate the skills needed to complete tests questions and activities. Use them at home as well!
