The Changing Roles of Statewide High School Exams
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
SREB states were among the first in the nation to implement statewide high school exams. Today, these exams are a key component of each state's accountability system. This report identifies which states use comprehensive exams and which use end-of-course exams, how students perform on them, and whether achievement gaps have narrowed. It also assesses the movement of SREB states toward using end-of-course exams and whether current exams measure college readiness. Appended are: (1) Analysis of Strength of High School Content Standards and Alignment of Statewide High School Exams to Standards; and (2) Pass Rates on Statewide High School Exams in Mathematics, by Racial/Ethnic Group. (Contains 6 tables and 2 boxes.)
