How Do End of Course Tests (EOCs) Work?

Last updated December 20, 2019

If you live in a state that requires you to take End of Course Tests to receive credit for core classes like science, social studies, math, English Composition, and PE - you’re probably curious how they work! Here’s a breakdown of how EOCs affect your grade, your ability to get class credit, and in what situations you can get the EOC requirement waived. 

Do End of Course Tests affect my grade?

In most states, yes End of Course Tests factor into your grades. For 9th graders, EOC’s count toward 15% of your total grade. For 10-12th graders, EOC’s count toward 20% of your final grade. This is a significant portion of your grade, so be sure to start studying well-before the date of test.

Do I have to pass my End of Course Tests to get credit for the class?

Not necessarily. As long as your final grade in the course -- including the grade you receive on your End of Course Test -- constitutes a passing grade of a D or better, you generally can get credit for the class.

Are End of Course Tests a requirement?

Yes. But you can have End of Course Test requirements waived under special circumstances. For example, if you have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), you may have EOC requirements waived. Check with your school on the rules in your state or school district.
