The EOC, or End-of-Course, Exam is the final exam that you will take in May of your sophomore year.  It takes the place of a traditional final exam.

The EOC exam is written by the same corporation that writes the ACT.  It is primarily a passage-based test, and the assessments that we take this school year will mirror the EOC.

On the EOC, you can make four scores, ranging from Novice (low) to Distinguished (high).  Each score category represents a range of scale scores.  Your individual scale score will translate to a specific grade that I will enter in the gradebook.  The target scale score is a 154.  This is the cutoff for a Proficient grade.  With Pre-AP students, our goal is to meet or exceed that score.  Students making Proficient or Distinguished will earn an A or a B on the final exam.
