2012-2013 Graduation Requirement Exams
Core 40 End of Course Assessments
ECA Testing December 18th & 19th
Students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade that have completed coursework in Algebra I or English 10, but have not received a qualifying score on the Indiana Department of Education End of Course Assessment, will be testing December 18th and 19th. The Algebra I ECA will be administered on Tuesday, December 18th and the English 10 ECA will be administered on Wednesday, December 19th. Earning a qualifying score on the End of Course Assessments is a requirement for graduation. Students have already been informed of their testing locations. Students should report directly to their testing locations on the day(s) of their exam. It is imperative that students are on time as exams will begin at the beginning of the school day. All students should get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast. Students have also been encouraged to bring a couple of #2 pencils with them to the exam. Mechanical pencils will not be allowed. Please talk with your student about leaving their cell phone at home or in their locker during the exam. Any disruption caused by an electronic device will result in an exam being invalidated. Students that are absent for either exam on Tuesday or Wednesday will be removed from their regular classes to make-up the exam on Thursday, December 20th.
Passing the Core 40 ECA in Algebra I and English 10 is required by the Indiana Department of Education as a condition for graduation. All Core 40 End-of-Course Assessments are paid for by the IDOE.
