South Carolina Exit Examination: Questions and Answers. A Basic Skills Assessment Publication.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Research.
This booklet answers frequently asked questions about the Exit Examination that students in South Carolina must pass before they receive a high school diploma. As provided for by the Education Improvement Act of 1984, the State Board of Education adopted the South Carolina Basic Skills Assessment Program (BSAP) objectives in 1985 as the basis for the Exit Examination. The Exit Examination consists of three subtests: (1) writing; (2) reading; and (3) mathematics. The examination is administered in the spring of each year to students in grades 10, 11, and 12 in public school and to Adult Education students. It is also administered each fall to all 12th-grade public and Adult Education students. A score of 700 or above is required to pass the reading and mathematics subtests; a score of 3 is required to pass the writing subtest. A student must pass all three subtests in order to pass the Exit Examination. This guide contains information on preparing for and taking the Exit Examination as well as a description of the ways in which skills are tested in the examination. Sample questions with answers are given for each of the subtests. (SLD)
