End of Course Exams December 12-20

November 19, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Education Accountability Act of 1998 (EAA) requires the administration of an end-of-course examination in all gateway or benchmark courses. All students enrolled in courses in which the curriculum standards corresponding to these subjects are taught must take the appropriate tests. Each of the following tests will count as 20 percent of the student’s grade in the tested subjects: Algebra 1 and/or Integrated Algebra, English 1, United States History, and Biology 1.  Students will take their EOC online through the DRC portal in a computer lab.  Students can practice for the EOC using the DRC portal at https://wbte.drcedirect.com/SC/portals/sc/ott1?index=1&adminId=520933.

In addition to end-of-course exams, Edisto High School will administer semester exams Thursday and Friday, December 20 and 21. All students will be required to take semester exams; students enrolled in courses requiring an end-of-course examination will be required to take the semester exam at the discretion of the teacher.

It is extremely important for students to be present and on time for these examinations. Students who are required to take an end-of-course examination will not receive a final grade in the class until the examination has been taken. Any student who misses an end-of-course examination (and the make-up session) will be required to take the examination when it is administered again in the spring in order to receive a final grade.

Pursuant to state testing regulations, students are not allowed to bring into the testing location any electronic device that can be used for communicating, timing, or imaging. These items include, but are not limited to, cell phones,  i-pods/mp3 players, smart watches, etc. Please discuss with your child the importance of adhering to this regulation.
