End of Course Exams
Mandatory ~ For those taking Biology
Optional ~ For those in Algebra I and II
EOC Exams are used to measure student proficiency of course content standards, inform instruction and standardize course expectations in Algebra I, Algebra II, Biology I, and U.S. History. They are administered online at the end of instruction during the last three weeks of the course. Students can take the test once within the three-week testing window (a second opportunity is allowed on a case-by-case basis).
Only the Biology EOC is required — it is a measure of high-school-level proficiency in Science as part of the Strive HI System. EOC exams in Algebra I and Algebra II are optional.
Each exam has approximately 50 questions aligned to the content standards assigned to the course. The exams are untimed and tests may be paused by either the student or the test administrator and completed at a later time within the testing window. (A student whose exam is paused for more than 20 minutes will not be allowed to review questions answered during the previous test session.) The EOC exams include multiple choice and constructed response questions that are machine-scored. When a student completes an exam, the student’s score is displayed on the monitor and access to the student’s score report is available to the student’s teacher via the same online reporting system.
