Ohio's options for a high school diploma are changing with the class of 2018! In addition to earning 21 high school credits (this has not changed), students can meet the additional graduation requirements by a variety of options through the new graduation pathways. Most students will meet this by earning 18 graduation points total on seven end-of-course exams (also known as AIR Tests or Ohio’s State Tests), with a minimum of 4 points on english tests, 4 points on math tests, and 6 points total between science and social studies tests. Once the default minimums have been met, the additional required points may come from any of the categories. These tests take place each winter and/or spring, and each of the seven tests is worth 1 to 5 graduation points. Students may also earn graduation points through Advanced Placement (AP) tests or College Credit Plus (CCP) courses but will still have to take the state tests in some areas. This points system replaces the old Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) requirement for graduation you may be familiar with. Click here to visit the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) website for more information. Or here for an ODE handout that explains the changes for 2018 and here for 2019 and beyond.
