Product Description

One key to success on the new Ohio Graduation Test in Social Studies will be for your students to become familiar with the test's format. The second key will be for them to thoroughly master the content and skills that will be assessed.

Mastering The Ohio Graduation Test In Social Studies provides the best way for your students to succeed on the Ohio Graduation Test in Social Studies.

Written by nationally-recognized experts with extensive experience in the field of social studies testing, Mastering The Ohio Graduation Test In Social Studies uses clear, insightful explanations and an interactive format to help prepare students for the challenging Ohio Graduation Test in Social Studies. The book is divided into three units.


The opening unit provides some important tools for helping students master social studies skills and perform their best on the OGT, including how to analyze the kind of data students will find on the test, such as maps, charts, timelines, diagrams, and graphs. Another chapter explores short-answer and extended-response questions with many important hints on how to best answer these questions.


This unit provides a review of all the tested benchmarks, including history, geography, people in society, economics, government, citizenship rights and responsibilities, and social studies skills and methods. This part of the book presents a complete refresher course of all of the content tested in a concise, easy-to-manage format.

  • Each content chapter begins with a chapter opener, alerting students to the most important material covered in the chapter.
  • Each chapter then reviews all the applicable benchmarks - for example, connecting Enlightenment ideas to changes in the relationship between citizens and governments, or the political, social, and economic effects of industrialization (History Benchmark: B).
  • All relevant information from the 9th and 10th Grade Level Indicators are carefully woven into the text in an insightful manner, making ideas and facts easier to understand and remember.
  • Content is presented in a student-friendly format. Each content chapter includes graphic organizers, maps, charts and photographs.
  • Unlike other test-prep books, Mastering The Ohio Graduation Test In Social Studies is perfectly aligned to the benchmarks so that your students review only material that will actually be tested on the OGT.
  • A special Benchmark Revisited section reinforces each benchmark by stressing its most relevant material.
  • Each content section concludes with a Checking Your Understanding section with model questions and a detailed explanation on how to best answer each question.
  • Each content chapter ends with a Testing Your Understanding section containing up to 20 test questions.


The book concludes with a complete practice test just like the real Ohio Graduation Test in Social Studies.

  • This practice OGT can be used as a diagnostic test to help identify particular benchmarks that students need to review further.
  • The practice test is similar in the distribution of questions and level of difficulty to the real Ohio Graduation Test in Social Studies.
