End of Course Tests (EOCT)

The A+ Educational Reform Act of 2000,O.C.G.A. §20-2-281, mandates that the State Board of Education adopt end-of-course assessments in grades nine through twelve for core subjects to be determined by the State Board of Education. With educator input, and State Board approval, the End-of-Course Assessment program is therefore comprised of the following 11 content area assessments:

    • Mathematics I: Algebra/Geometry/Statistics

    • Mathematics II: Geometry/Algebra II/Statistics

    • GPS Algebra

    • GPS Geometry

    • Coordinate Algebra* (CCGPS beginning Winter 2012)

  • Social Studies

    • United States History

    • Economics/Business/Free Enterprise

  • Science

    • Biology

    • Physical Science

  • English Language Arts

    • Ninth Grade Literature and Composition (CCGPS beginning Winter 2012)

    • American Literature and Composition (CCGPS beginning Winter 2012)


*This is a new addition to the program beginning with the 2012-2013 school year.

What is the purpose of the EOCT?

Improved teaching and learning are the main focus of Georgia’s education system. The EOCT align with the Georgia curriculum standards and include assessment of specific content knowledge and skills. The assessments provide diagnostic information to help students identify strengths and areas of need in learning, therefore improving performance in all high school courses and on other assessments, such as the GHSGT. The EOCT also provide data to evaluate the effectiveness of classroom instruction at the school, system and state levels. In 2011 – 2012, the EOCT became Georgia’s high school accountability assessment as part of the College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI).

Who is required to take the EOCT?

Any student enrolled in and/or receiving credit for an EOCT course, regardless of grade level, will be required to take the EOCT upon completion of that course. Middle school students completing an EOCT course must take the EOCT regardless of whether they are receiving high school credit. Students enrolling from non-accredited programs are required to take and pass the EOCT prior to receiving credit for the course.

How does the EOCT affect the student's grade?

The EOCT is administered upon completion of one of the above courses. A student’s final grade in the course will be calculated using the EOCT as follows (State Board Rule 160-4-2-.13):

  • For students enrolled in grade nine for the first time before July 1, 2011, the EOCT counts as 15% of the final grade.

  • For students enrolled in grade nine for the first time on July 1, 2011 or after, the EOCT counts as 20% of the final grade.

When are the EOCT administered?

There are three main administrations of the EOCT: Winter, Spring and Summer. In addition, on-line Mid-Month administrations may be given in August, September, October, November, January, February and March.

Re-test administration windows are held in conjunction with the existing Online Mid-month and Summer administration windows. These re-tests are intended to provide students who are not proficient on an EOCT (in a course that they have just completed) with one additional opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency on the assessment.

What is the format of the EOCT?

The EOCT can be administered via paper-and-pencil assessments or in an on-line format. Paper-and-pencil assessments are only available during the main administrations. Online assessments are available for all administrations. Each test is administered in two 60 minute sections. One or two-day administration schedules may be selected by systems.

Scores and Reports

Systems will receive a full set of reports for each administration. These reports include:

Class Roster Reports (electronic only) with a 5-day turnaround (Rapid Scoring) – Give scale score, grade conversion score, performance level and domain level information for each student in a specific class

Individual Student Reports (electronic or paper) - Include scale score and a grade conversion score. One copy should be filed in the student’s permanent record and one given to student/parent

Summary Reports (system, school and class) – Generated by subject and present summary statistics for a particular group of students

Content Area Summary Reports (system and school) – Provide information for school, system and state at the Domain Level
