Published 12:00 am Wednesday, February 5, 2003

On Thursday, 45 city students will grab their pencils and put their knowledge to the test.

The annual Child Welfare Club's Eddy Test will be held Thursday. The organization describes the test as a scholastic achievement test for selected Ironton Middle and St. Lawrence schools.

To qualify for the test, students at the two city schools must do well on the Ohio Off-Grade Proficiency Tests. Standard scores in reading, math, citizenship and science were totaled and ranked at the completion of the tests. For St. Lawrence students, the composite scores from any nationally recognized standardized test that measures scores in all core classes is used to determine eligibility.
