LEAP2025 High School/End–of-Course Tests
At this time there are two types of assessments at the end of select high school courses. The older assessment is called the End of Course Test (EOC). Over the past two years most EOC tests have been replaced with the new LEAP 2025.
High School students take EOC tests in English III and Biology.
Students who entered 9th grade before 2017-2018 are still required to take the EOC English III test when they complete the English III course. They will not be eligible to use the LEAP 2025 English I test for graduation purposes.
Students enrolled in Biology in 2017-2018 will take the current Biology EOC test. The Spring 2018 Biology EOC will include embedded field test items to create the new LEAP 2025 Biology assessment that will be administered in 2018-2019.
