IRONTON — The annual Child Welfare Club’s Eddy Test was held on Wednesday, Feb. 18 at Ohio University Southern Campus. This year, thirty sixth-grade students from Ironton Elementary School and St. Lawrence Catholic School qualified to take the test.

To qualify for the test, students at Ironton Elementary School must score in the top 25 percent on the Fifth-Grade Ohio Achievement Test. Standard scores in reading, math, social studies and science are 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 core subjects is used to determine eligibility.
