• End of Course Exams (Graduation Tests) -

    End-of-course exams are: 

    • Algebra I
    • Geometry
    • Biology
    • American History
    • American Government
    • English I
    • English II

    In addition to the 18 points students must have met minimum subscore of 4 on English, 4 on Math, and 6 for Science and Social Studies.

    For each of the seven end-of-course state tests, a student earns one to five graduation points. Students have the potential to earn a total of 35 points. To meet this graduation pathway, a student must earn a minimum number of 18 points from the seven tests.

    This graduation pathway gives a student flexibility in accumulating 18 points. A high score on one test can balance a low score on another test. A student must earn a total of at least four points on English tests, four points on math tests and six points on science and social studies tests.

    Students may earn graduation points through approved substitute tests

    • College Credit Plus (CCP) courses or approved AP/IB tests, in the subject area, will satisfy the end-of-course graduation test requirement for American history, American government, physical science (class of 2018 only) and biology. The college course grade earned under College Credit Plus or AP/IB test score may earn graduation points in place of the end-of-course tests as provided here. 
    • It is important to note, while students can earn graduation points for CCP coursework and AP/IB test scores in biology, all schools must administer the biology end-of-course tests to all students in order to satisfy federal testing requirements. CCP students may use their course grade and AP/IB students may use their test scores OR the biology end-of-course test score to earn graduation points, whichever is higher. A student completing a CCP course in American history or American government will not need to sit for the end-of-course tests in the subject area and may earn graduation points based on the letter grade in the course.
    • There are no CCP/AP/IB substitutions for mathematics or English language arts. Students may use math and English language arts CCP/AP/IB courses to satisfy the graduation curriculum requirements. But schools must administer the end-of-course tests to students to earn graduation points.
