Testing Blueprint Description
Test blueprints serve as a guide for test construction and provide an outline of the content and skills to be measured on the test. They contain information about individual tests, including the number of test items, the number of points on the test, and show how the learning standards are grouped in order to report the test results.
Draft Test Specification Documents
The Ohio Department of Education has released a set of Draft test specification documents, including description of the assessment components and item types, assessment blueprints, and item specifications, to help educators and the general public better understand the design of Ohio’s State Tests in Science and Social Studies. These documents are used to guide the development of the Ohio’s State Tests for Science and Social Studies.
