School districts and charter schools are now required to administer the English I and United States History end-of-course (EOC) assessments to all non-MAP-A students beginning with the cohort graduating in Spring 2016. English I and United States History represent a new assessment requirement approved by the State Board of Education in August, 2011. They will be administered in addition to Algebra 1, English II, Biology, and Government. They are intended to serve as final exams in these content areas.
Students graduating in Spring 2016 who completed the English I or American History course prior to the 2012-2013 school year are not required to take the EOC assessment retroactively.
The English I and American History assessments will continue to be administered online at no cost to school districts and charter schools for the 2012-2013 school year. Sample tests and achievement level descriptors may be found at http://dese.mo.gov/divimprove/assess/eoc_resources.html.
The End of Course Exception collection is a trial available for reporting in the MOSIS Data Collection System. This collection allows school districts to report End-of-Course exceptions for the mandatory assessments required of each student for which a district graduates.
