Important Testing update regarding EOC "Test-out" Administrations:
As provided for in amendments to State Board of Education Rule 160-5-1-.15 adopted by the State Board in April 2013, the opportunity exists for students to “test-out” of any course for which there is an associated EOC and earn credit for the course if a performance level of Distinguished Learner is achieved. Students must meet the following criteria to be eligible for this option:
·Not currently or previously enrolled in the course nor currently or previously enrolled in a higher level course;
·Have earned a grade of B or better in the most recent course that is the same content area of the course for which the student is attempting the EOC;
·Received a teacher recommendation from the teacher of the most recent course in the same content area (or, if not available, a teacher in the same content area with knowledge of the student’s academic achievement) for which the student is attempting the EOC; and
·Received parent/guardian permission if the student is less than 18 years of age.
The fee to test is $50.00, which will be refunded if a performance level score of Exceeds is achieved on the test. The EOC test-out option will be available for eligible students during the March 3-6, 2014 and June16-20, 2014 Mid-month administrations. For more information, please contact your child’s school counselor.
