Now Enrolling for the 2022-2023 School Year

End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments

End-of-Course 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 participate if the district school permits it or if the student receives state scholarship funding. Currently, there are EOC assessments for the following courses:

  • M/J Civics
  • Algebra I
  • Biology I
  • Geometry
  • U.S. History

Students interested in participating in EOC assessments should register at least six weeks prior to first day of the assessment window. Assessment schedules can be found on the Florida Department of Education and Florida Statewide Assessments websites.

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

Students are required to complete a computer-based practice test prior to sitting for an EOC assessment. Visit the Florida Statewide Assessments website to access the practice tests. Students will sign in as guests.

Identification Requirement

Students need to present photo identification to school staff to verify their identity. Please ensure that your child has a school or Florida issued Photo ID on the date of testing.

Who to Contact

EOC assessments are administered by district schools. Accommodations are made and paper-based tests are available for students with disabilities.

Something to Note

Pursuant to F.S. 1003.4282, if a student transfers to a Florida public high school from a private school and the student’s transcript shows a credit in Algebra I, the student must pass the statewide, standardized Algebra I EOC assessment in order to earn a standard high school diploma unless the student earned a comparative score, passed a statewide assessment in Algebra I administered by the transferring entity, or passed the statewide mathematics assessment the transferring entity uses to satisfy the requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), 20 U.S.C. ss. 6301 et seq.

If a student’s transcript shows a credit in high school reading or English Language Arts II or III, in order to earn a standard high school diploma, the student must take and pass the statewide, standardized grade 10 ELA assessment, or earn a concordant score.

If a transfer student’s transcript shows a final course grade and course credit in Algebra I, Geometry, Biology I, or United States History, the transferring course final grade and credit shall be honored without the student taking the requisite statewide, standardized EOC assessment and without the assessment results constituting 30 percent of the student’s final course grade.
