Local students get ready for Eddy test

Thirty-eight city students will grab a pencil in two days and take a test.

Tuesday, February 06, 2001

Thirty-eight city students will grab a pencil in two days and take a test.

And this one’s not a proficiency exam – it’s the annual Child Welfare Club event that will mark the first scholars of the year.

Club members have announced candidates for the 2001 Eddy Test, a scholastic achievement test for selected Ironton Middle and St. Lawrence schools.

The actual test is only two days away.

To be eligible, students must do well on the Ohio Off-Grade Proficiency Tests. Standard scores in reading, math, citizenship and science were totaled and ranked at the test’s completion.

At St. Lawrence School, the complete composite score of any nationally norm standardized test determines eligibility, and the composite score must include all core class subjects.

The top 25 percent of sixth-grade students from both Ironton Middle School and St. Lawrence School as of the end of the first semester are eligible to take the Eddy Test.

The students will grab their pencils and take the test Thursday. Students in the top one-third of all Eddy Test participants will receive an Eddy Award at a banquet later this year.
