•   HIGH SCHOOL TESTING

    What courses will require an EOC test? 

    Math English Science Social Studies
    Algebra I English I Biology U.S. History
      English II    

    When can my student take the EOC test?

    Each year students will have three opportunities to take the EOC tests. They are:

    1. Fall (December)

    2. Spring (May)

    3. Summer (June)

    All high school students are required to take each EOC test as many times as necessary until he/she meets the passing standard for that test, as this is one of the requirements for graduation.  

    Student Performance:

    Upon completion of an administration, each student will receive a score indicating their performance on a report called the "Confidential Student Report" (CSR). This report will be mailed to the home address on record for students as soon as they arrive, per TEA guidance.

    The school year in which a student took his/her FIRST EOC test, will determine what the "Level II-Satisfactory Performance" scores for each subject test are.

    Students performance will fall into one of the three categories below:

    • Level III: Advanced Academic Performance
    • Level II: Satisfactory Academic Performance
    • Level I: Unsatisfactory Academic Performance 

     

    Time Limits:

    TEA established a four (4) hour time limit for both STAAR grades 3-8 assessments and STAAR EOC assessments, except for ENG I & ENG II, which has a five (5) hour time limit, beginning with the April 2014 administration.  TEA notes that these time limits should provide sufficient time for the majority of students to complete the test. The rationale for time limits aligns Texas testing practices with other timed state and national assessments, i.e. SAT, ACT and AP examinations. Extended time accommodations for students with unique learning needs will continue to be offered.

     

    CISD Electronic Device Policy:     

      

     

    T.E.A. has directed the Local Education Agencies to develop an elctronic device policy, as outlined in the 2017 Test Security Supplement. In order to comply with this directive, CISD has instituted the following Electronic Device Policy;

    All cell phones and electronic devices are prohibited during testing sessions, and should not be available for use by the student. The student's test may receive a "Do Not Score" label if the device is visible or heard during the test administration. If the Test Administrator observes the devise, it may be confiscated and reported to the District Testing Coordinator and the Campus Administrator for further action. The campus/district is not responsible for the loss or damage to phones or electronic devices brought into the testing environment. The safest place for devices on testing days is at home. Thank you for your cooperation.
