Grades 7-13: End of Course Examinations (EOC)


Bobbie Paul

At the September 12, 2017 State Board of Education Meeting the Board approved recommendations
related to the transition from End of Course (EOC) examinations to End of Course finals as
required by Assembly Bill 7 (AB 7) from the 2017 legislative session.

The State Board adopted a phased implementation of the EOC final:

  • 2017-18 School Year –No percentage requirement, district discretion to set a percentage of the student’s final grade if it chooses to.
  • 2018-19 School Year - 10% of course grade
  • 2019-20 School Year - 15% of course grade
  • 2020-21 School Year and beyond - 20% of course grade

For the 2017-18 school year there is a requirement to pass the course but no state requirement that the EOC Final is passed or that the final count for a specific percentage of a student’s grade. Starting in 2018-19 the EOC final will count at 10% of the student’s final grade and increase 5 percentage points each year until reaching 20% of the grade in 2020-21.

End of Course (EOC) examinations measure how well a student understands the subject they are enrolled in. Students take the EOC exam at the conclusion of the aligned course. The EOC exams are aligned to the NVACS in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. EOCs are administered in the following subjects: 

  • Math I Emphasis on Algebra I
  • Math II Emphasis on Geometry
  • Integrated Mathematics 1
  • Integrated Mathematics 2
  • ELA 

    The EOC exams are aligned to the Nevada Academic Contents Standards in English language arts, and math as follows:
