End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments

End-of-Course Assessments (EOC Assessments) are computer-based tests that are administered for the purpose of testing a student's knowledge and skills learned for specific middle and high school level courses. These statewide assessments were created to meet accountability requirements for Florida public schools. Students enrolled at Aspiring Heights Academy are not required to take EOC assessments, however, they may be eligible to participate, if desired. Currently, there are EOC assessments for Algebra 1, Biology 1, Geometry, United States History and middle school Civics. (The Algebra 2 EOC assessment was eliminated in 2017.)

Under the Credit Acceleration Program (s. 1003.4295(3), F.S.), a student may earn high school credit in Algebra 1, Biology 1, Geometry, and U.S. History if the student passes the corresponding EOC assessment. The student does not have to enroll in or complete the course.

Practice Test Requirement

All students who wish to participate in an EOC assessment must participate in an electronic practice test (ePAT) for that subject test. You are responsible for ensuring that your child has taken an ePAT at home using the appropriate ePAT administration script. You may access the ePAT software and scripts for administering the ePAT at PearsonAccess. Prior to testing, test administrators will ask students if they have participated in an ePAT; if they have not, they will not be permitted to test.

Identification Requirement

Your child will need to present photo identification to school staff to verify his or her identity. Please ensure that your child has a school or Florida issued Photo ID on the date of testing. If your child needs a school ID, please let us know. Please make sure we have sufficient time to process and mail your child's ID.

Who to Contact

EOC assessments are administered by district schools. Test schedules can be found on the FSA Portal. Accommodations are made and paper-based tests are available for students with disabilities. If your child would like to participate in EOC assessments, you will need to contact the coordinator in your zoned district school's assessment office (not the district school).

Public school students are required to pass specific statewide, standardized assessments to earn course credit and meet graduation requirements. If your student may at some point enter or return to a Florida public school, we highly recommend your child take these tests.
