AIR Testing at Heath Middle School
April and May are the time for important testing in the state of Ohio. More specifically, all students will participate in AIR testing, Ohio’s State Tests. These tests measure student progress toward Ohio’s Learning Standards. Student test results show that students have the knowledge and skills they need to move successfully to their next steps in education or career.

AIR testing schedule:

6th and 7th grade students will be testing in their first period classrooms.  
8th grade students will be testing in the auditorium with small groups in 8th grade classrooms.

* If your child has a planned absence during one of these days, please let the office know immediately so we can make a plan to test on another day.  Once a student begins a test session, it is complicated to pause and restart at another time.

Testing Room Requirements:
• Students may not have cell phones, smart watches, fitbits or any other electronic devices in the testing room. Please join us in encouraging your student to start developing a plan for what to do with his/her device(s) before they enter the testing site.
• Students are required to have headphones and/or earbuds for testing sessions. If your student does not currently have a pair, please consider visiting WalMart and/or a dollar store. The school can provide headphones for students to borrow, however students prefer to use their personal headphones.
• Students will be provided calculators, it is not necessary for students to bring their own.

Testing Day Tips for Success:
• Getting a full night’s sleep before each test will help your student with the increased focus necessary for these rigorous tests. We suggest 8 hours of sleep before a test day.
• Having a balanced breakfast, including protein, can help your student sustain energy during the testing session. A few breakfast ideas include: eggs, breakfast sandwiches, greek yogurt, wheat bread with peanut butter, etc.
*Note: HMS offers breakfast every morning.  If your student receives assistance with lunch, the same assistance applies with breakfast fees.
• Encouraging your student to dress in layers will make it easier for your student to adjust to the setting of the testing room and help prevent the possible distraction of excessive heat or cold.
• Aiming for good attendance during the testing season will allow your student to experience more time between tests rather than make-up tests which are accomplished in a shorter window of time.

This can often be a stressful time for all.  Please continue to encourage your child to simply do their best on each test.
