The End of Course  Exams (EOC)

Four End of Course Examinations are taking the place of the Nevada High School Proficiency Examinations, starting with the Class of 2017. Students will take the EOCs at the conclusion of the course, regardless of when that course is taken during a student’s high school career. Most students take these courses during their freshman and sophomore years of high school.
This year, End of Course Exams will be given in the spring semester between April 25 and May 20, 2016, for the following subjects:
  • English Language Arts I with a focus
  • on reading comprehension
  • English Language Arts II with a focus
  • on writing
  •  Math I with a focus on Algebra I
  • Math II with a focus on Geometry
  • Integrated Math I
  • Integrated Math II
During this time of transition, the Classes of 2017 and 2018 (current 10th and 11th graders) must take the End of Course Exams, but do not need to achieve a certain score. The Class of 2019 (current 9th graders) must receive a passing score on the EOCs, which will be set by the State Board of Education.

The High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE)
Seniors in the Class of 2016 are the last students required to pass the HSPE. The HSPE contains sections for reading, mathematics, science, and writing. The reading, mathematics, and science portions of the HSPE were administered for the first time in the spring of the student’s 10th-grade year. The writing portion of the examination was administered for the first time in the fall semester of the student’s 11th-grade year.
Students may retake these tests multiple times. Current 12th graders who still need to pass the HSPE in science or writing should inquire at their schools about eligibility requirements for the Alternative HSPE in science and writing.

College and Career Readiness Assessement (ACT)

All juniors must take Nevada’s college and career readiness (CCR) assessment. However, only participation in the assessment is required. For school year 2015-16, the State Board of Education chose the ACT as Nevada’s CCR assessment. A student’s ACT scores will not be used to determine graduation eligibility, but they can be submitted with college applications.
Nevada juniors will take the ACT Plus Writing, which consists of a 30-minute writing test and 215 multiple-choice questions in four subject areas: English, mathematics, reading and science. The test will be administered at the student’s school during the regular school day.
All Nevada juniors will take the ACT free of charge. This gives all Nevada students the opportunity to take a nationally recognized college admissions exam.
Why is this requirement important? Studies show that students who take the ACT are more likely to apply to and attend college. Parents and guardians can look at a student’s ACT results and work together to determine the best college and career paths.
