Required High School Assessments

Students at the high school level will take an end-of-course assessment in the following ten courses:

  • Language Arts
    • Ninth Grade Literature and Composition
    • American Literature and Composition
  • Mathematics
    • Algebra I or Coordinate Algebra
    • Geometry or Analytic Geometry
  • Science
    • Biology
    • Physical Science​​
  • Social Studies
    • United States History
    • Economics/Business/Free Enterprise

The end-of-course measures are administered at the completion of the course, regardless of the grade level.  These measures serve as the final exam for the course, and contribute 20% to the student’s final course grade.  Each school district selects a local testing window, based on their local school calendar, from within the state-designated testing window. Middle school students who are enrolled in one or more of these courses are required to take the associated end-of-course (EOC) measure. If enrolled in a mathematics and/or science EOC course, these middle school students will not take the corresponding content area end-of-grade (EOG) measure.
