37 EOC Assessments EOC assessments shall measure a student’s performance on college and career readiness standards EOC assessments will include questions to measure college readiness (Algebra II and English III) If a link is substantiated between performance on science and/or social studies EOC assessments and college readiness, then college readiness performance standards may be established 37

38 EOC Assessments A student must achieve a minimum score, as determined by the commissioner, for the score to count towards the student’s cumulative score A student’s cumulative score is determined using the student’s highest score on each EOC assessment The 0–100 scale with references to scores of 60 and 70 has been deleted from the law 38

39 EOC Assessments If a student does not achieve the minimum score on an EOC assessment, the student shall retake the assessment If a student does not perform satisfactorily on the college-readiness component of the EOC assessments for Algebra II or English III, the student may retake the assessment 39

40 EOC Assessments A student’s score on an EOC assessment will be worth 15% of the student’s final grade for that course A school district is not required to use the student’s score on subsequent administrations to determine the student’s final grade for that course 40
