2 WHAT ARE THE EOG’SEOG’s are end of grade tests that measure a student’s academic growth from beginning of year to the end Students take the following EOG’s in grades 3-5 take the following: -3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will take Math and Reading -5th graders will also take Science
3 READ TO ACHIEVEStudents in 3rd grade must meet proficiency on at least ONE of thefollowing to be promoted at the end of the school year:Beginning of Grade 3 ELA/Reading test3rd grade Reading PortfolioState BOE-approved LEA assessmentReading 3-D or MAP3rd grade ELA/Reading EOG3rd grade ELA/Reading EOG RetestRead to Achieve Test
4 WHAT DOES THE TEST LOOK LIKE? There are copies of the released EOG’s (and answer keys) at the following site: releasedforms Scroll down the page for EOG Reading, Math Science & NC Extend 2 Testing Sample Bubble Sheets math math/gr35sampleanssheet.pdf
5 READING EOG*Selections will include fiction, recipes, poetry, instructions, informational texts, graphic organizers, charts, tables, and schedules *Apply test taking strategies on all preparation activities and when taking multiple choice tests

7 READING STRATEGIES Read directions, preview the story title & read EVERY word on the page!2. READ the ENTIRE selection from beginning to end!Summarize, question and predict in the margins.READ each ? and all of the answer choices.REFERENCE the text to find the answers.6. Cross out answers that don’t make sense.7. Choose the best answer based on the text.

10 WHAT IS GRIDDED/OPEN RESPONSE? Practice: Grade 5 Open Response QuestionsSome questions are open response. They will require you to enter a numerical answer, rather than select an answer from several choices.GuidelinesWrite only one digit or symbol in each box. Spaces are permitted before or after your answer, but not within the answer. Darken the corresponding circle below each box. The computer scores based on the darkened circles.Do not use symbols such as commas or dollar signs. See Examples D and E. Use only symbols that are provided in the circles.If an answer is a mixed number, it must be changed and entered as an improper fraction or a decimal. Example C has the mixed number four and one-half, which is 9/2 as an improper fraction or 4.5 as a decimal.
11 SAMPLE GRIDDED/OPEN RESPONSE ExamplesEnter the numbers below into the grids.ABCDE5/103/24 1/25,600$25.99
12 CONTINUED…A 5/10 can be also answered as 1/2, as 0.5 or as .5. (Equal numbers are fine.) B 3/2 is an improper fraction. It may be entered as 3, then /, then 2. It may also be entered as 1.5. C 4 1/2 can be answered as 9/2 or as 4.5. Spaces in a number are not permitted. Also, the entry 41/2 with no space would be interpreted as 41 divided by 2. D 5,600 should be answered as (Commas are not permitted.) E $25.99 should be answered as (Dollar signs are not permitted.)
13 SCIENCE EOGVocabulary – student’s need to be familiar with content area vocabulary 4 Key areas of Study Landforms Weather Ecosystems Force and Motion
