Primary Assessments

What content areas and grade levels are tested?

Students in grades 3 through 8 will take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and mathematics while students in grades 5 and 8 are assessed in science and social studies.  High school students take an end-of-course for each of the ten courses designated by the State Board of Education.  The ten courses are listed below:

English 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 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 enrolled in one or more of these courses are required to take the associated end-of-course (EOC) measure. If enrolled in an ELA, mathematics and/or science EOC course, these middle school students will not take the corresponding content area end-of-grade (EOG) measure.
