Preparing for The U.s. History Eoc

PREPARING FOR THE U.S. HISTORY EOC What Do We Need to Know and Do? What is the testing schedule? February 2012 Districts will be notified which students are selected for the field test April 29-June 1 Field test testing window April-June 2013 Baseline testing

2014 Full implementation Who takes the test? Every student who is enrolled in any U.S. history course to receive the required graduation credit. While the test was developed based on the course description for regular and honors U.S. History, students in AP, IB, and dual enrollment for graduation credit will be required to take the test.

How will this affect AP students? The test should be easier than AP in that it is all multiple choice. About 60% of the AP content is the same as the regular and honors content. AP students will move through the tested content at a much faster pace but will still be required to pass the EOC. What is on the test? Test Item Specifications are now available at

The test is based on state-adopted course descriptions on the DOE website and on the social studies page on the district web site. The test is multiple choice, but over 75% of the items are mid and high complexity. How are questions set up?
