Documentation :: Teachers :: Science Standards Alignments :: Alignment with Ohio’s Learning Standards and Model Curriculum for Science
Many of the free practice quizzes on PhysQuiz.net align directly with Ohio’s Learning Standards for Physics. According to the Ohio Department of Education website, “The State Board of Education adopted Ohio’s Learning Standards for Science as a part of Ohio’s learning system. The Ohio Department of Education’s current state assessments are also created in accordance with these standards.”
