End-of-Course Test (EOCT)

The EOCT program was retired after the November 2014 Mid-Month administration. The Georgia Milestones Assessment System has replaced the EOCT beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.

The A Plus Education Reform Act of 2000, O.C.G.A. ยง20-2-281, mandated 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. The End-of-Course Testing (EOCT) program was comprised of eight content area assessments:

  • English/Language Arts
    • Ninth Grade Literature and Composition
    • American Literature and Composition
  • Mathematics
    • Math I/Coordinate Algebra
    • Math II/Analytic Geometry
  • Science
    • Biology
    • Physical Science
  • Social Studies
    • U.S. History
    • Economics

The EOCT was administered three times each school year in the fall, spring, and summer. Performance on the EOCT was described as a scale score and performance level as indicated below:

  • Scores below 400 - Does Not Meet Expectations
  • Scores from 400-449 - Meets Expectations
  • Scores at or above 450 - Exceeds Expectations
