About the tests

  • In 2011-2012 Washington used End-of-Course (EOC) examinations to assess students in algebra I, geometry, integrated math I, integrated math II, and biology.
  • The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington.
  • The different student groups are identified by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
  • The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
