Dulaney, Chuck; Burch, Glenda
North Carolina began administering its End-of-Course (EOC) tests to high school students in the 1985-1986 school year with the first administration of the Algebra test. Other tests have been added over the years, and the program now includes 10 multiple choice EOC tests aligned with the state's Standard Course of Study in each subject and one writing test. This report presents information about the EOC test results for students in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS). EOC test scores in the WCPSS in the 2000-2001 school year showed generally positive results when compared to the 1999-2000 school year data. WCPSS students showed gains in seven subject areas, and no change in three subject areas on the multiple choice tests. No multiple choice test showed a decline in average score. On the English writing test, 63.0% of WCPSS students showed proficiency in writing in 2001, up 4.9 percentage points from the 58.1% of 2000. (Contains 13 figures.) (SLD)
