North Carolina End-of-Course Tests

The North Carolina End-of-Course Tests are used to sample a student’s knowledge of subject-related concepts as specified in the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and to provide a global estimate of the student’s mastery of the material in a particular content area. The North Carolina End-of-Course tests were initiated in response to legislation passed by the North Carolina General Assembly – the North Carolina Elementary and Secondary Reform Act of 1984. In the 2011-12 school year, students enrolled in the following courses are required to take the North Carolina EOC tests: Algebra I, Biology, and English I.
