High School End of Course Exams

About End of Course Exams

In the new High School Transition Policy, the State Board stipulated that End of Course examinations will be given in English I, English II, English III, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, U.S. History, Biology I, Chemistry and Physics. Further, the results of these examinations will be factored into the student’s grade at a percentage determined by the State Board of Education in accordance with T.C.A. §49-1-302 (2).

  • The End of Course exam grade will count 20 percent of the second semester grade for the 2009-10 and the 2010-11 school years and 25 percent of the second semester grade in subsequent school years.
  • Students will not be required to pass any one examination, but instead students must achieve a passing score for the course in accordance with the State Board of Education’s uniform grading policy.
