End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) Testing
The South Carolina Board of Education states that when students complete one of the "gateway" or "benchmark" courses for high school credit they must take the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) test.
The EOCEP tests will be administered beginning the week of May 20th in Greenville County Schools. Identified students who are enrolled in Algebra 1/Algebra 1B, English 1, United States History, and Biology 1 will participate in testing. RHS will administering the tests on the following days:
- May 21 - Biology
- May 22 - US History & English 1
- May 23 - Algebra 1/Algebra 1B
The EOCEP tests are multiple choice and untimed, but 2 hours is the estimated test administration time for most students to complete the test. Each session must be completed during a single day unless the student has an IEP or 504 Accommodation Plan specifying administration of a single test over several days.
Help us help your child perform to the best of his or her ability.
- Rest on the nights before these tests.
- Eat a nourishing breakfast on the morning of each test.
- Be in school and on time, except in cases of illness.
- Bring at least two #2 pencils to school. They are required for marking test answer documents.
- Listen attentively to the teachers directions so he/she will know exactly what to do.
- Read each test question and each response carefully before marking an answer choice.
- Stay calm, if there are questions that seem difficult.
- Mark his/her best answer.
- Do not bring any electronic device that can be used for communicating, timing, or imaging into the testing location
Do you have a CHANGE OF ADDRESS?
Parents - if you have moved and have not turned in 2 new proofs of residence to the School Counseling Office, your address has not been changed in our data base; therefore, your child may not receive their final report card and their schedule for the new school year at orientation.
