What test are we giving and who needs to take them.

Algebra 1 EOC

Students may choose to not take the Alg 1 EOC and take an alternate test to receive a concordant score (see info below). Students choosing to do this are doing so with the understanding that they are responsible for making this decision and are required to fulfill all graduation requirements before the date of graduation.

  • Students who took Algebra 1 or Algebra 1B last year had the EOC waived due to the cancellation of spring testing.  The state waiver was for the 30% calculation of the final grade, not the math testing graduation requirement.  To meet this requirement students must pass the Algebra 1 EOC with a Level 3 or higher or meet one of the comparative math scores on the PSAT, SAT, ACT or PERT (only the 12th-grade cohort is eligible to use PERT). 
  • Students may now use the Geometry EOC to fulfill the Alg 1 EOC graduation requirement.
  • Math Concordant score testing schedule:
    • PERT 97 on Math only (Seniors Only)
    • SAT School Day 420 on Math only (Seniors only) 9/23
