This report provides a summary of states currently administering end-of-course (EOC) assessments. The number of EOC assessments administered by states, the subjects most likely to have an associated EOC exam, and the purpose of EOC exams (for example, percentage of the final course grade and/or graduation requirement) are reviewed. State policies regarding the testing of students who transfer from private schools or out-of-state schools are summarized. In an effort to help school districts and states avoid similar difficulties, some of the problems encountered by Texas school districts during the initial administration of their spring 2012 EOC assessments are also discussed. Finally, a brief review of Florida's EOC assessment program is provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
