Gr. 9
Gr. 9
• First-time 9th graders 2015 Cohort: EOC for enrolled courses in Spring
2012.
• Repeat 9th graders: No assessments scheduled for Spring 2012.
• 2015 Cohort (Enrolled in 8th grade in 2011 and in 9th grade for at least one day in
2012 school year): EOC for enrolled courses in Spring 2012.
Gr. 10
• 2014 Cohort or less (Enrolled in high school prior to current year or enrolled in
high school for the 1st time in Texas in 2012): 10th grade TAKS

Q 18-19: What about Transfer, Foreign
Exchange, or other New Students
• Two golden rules*:
A student who has received High
School credit for a course prior to
enrollment does NOT have to retake
the EOC.
If you are ENROLLED in a course for
which there is an EOC – you will
need to take the EOC.
*For the standard STAAR EOC assessments only. Does not apply to alternative assessments.

Q 20-35: EOC for Credit vs.
EOC for Graduation
Credit
Graduation
Credit is awarded based on a final course
grade of 70 or better. GPA and Class
rank are based on the final course
grades.
A student will need to meet the required
CUMULATIVE SCORE for each subject in
order to graduate under the degree plan
of their choice.
EOC results will count as 15% of the final
grade by applying the 15% to each
semester in order to award partial credit.
1st and 2nd semester grades will be
averaged for a final course grade.
A student must score at LEAST the
Minimum standard in order for the score
to be included in the Cumulative Score
(and at least Satisfactory for English III
and Algebra II for RHSP/DHSP).
Once a student has received credit for a
course, EOC retakes will no longer affect
the final course grade.
A student may retake any EOC exam in
order to improve their Cumulative Score .
These results will only be included if they
improve the students Cumulative Score.

Q 41: English I, II and III
• English EOCs will be administered over 2 days
– Day 1: Writing component with 2 essays (4 hrs)
– Day 2: Reading component (4 hrs)
• The Reading and Writing components are treated
as different exams and will be scored
independently.
• The results for all 6 English exams (English I, II and III
Reading and Writing) will be used to determine the
student’s Cumulative Score for English.
Research & Evaluation - 1-19-12
7
Q41: English I, II and III (cont.)
• Scoring and Retesting:
– The student must achieve at least the Minimum score
on each of the 4 components for English I and II, and
at least a Satisfactory score for the 2 components of
English III for RHSP/DHSP.
– If a student misses either of the 2 components for a
subject, the student will be able to retake just the
component (Reading or Writing) that is needed. The
highest scores will be used in the Cumulative Scores.
The highest scores do not need to be from the same
test administration.

Q 43-44: Testing & Retesting
Opportunities
• STAAR EOC will be offered in the Spring and Summer of the
2012 school year.
• Beginning in 2012-13, STAAR EOC will be offered 3 times
each year, at the end of the Fall and Spring Semesters and
during the Summer.
• Students may elect to retake an EOC in order to improve
their final grade in a course (if they have not yet received
credit) or to improve their Cumulative Score in any subject.
– Students may retake an EOC even if they previously scored at or
above the Minimum score.
– Retest scores from EOC exams will only be included in the
Cumulative Score if the score is higher than the original score.

Q 25, 34, 45-50: Alternative Assessments
for Special Education Students
• Special Education students taking STAAR EOC (with or without
accommodations)
– The EOC exam result will apply as 15% of their final grade
– The ARD Committee will decide if the student has met the course requirements
in order to receive credit
– The ARD Committee will decide if the student has met the assessment
requirements for graduation if the student does not meet the Cumulative Score
requirements. If so, the student will be moved to the Minimum High School
Plan (MHSP).
• Special Education students taking STAAR EOC M (Modified) or ALT
(Alternative)
– The EOC exam results will not apply as 15% of their final grade
– The ARD Committee will decide if the student has met the course requirements
in order to receive credit
– The student will be placed on a the Minimum High School Plan (MHSP)
– The ARD Committee will decide if the student has met the assessment
requirements for graduation if the student does not meet the Cumulative Score
requirements.

EOC Raw Score Conversion
For all EOC exams
• The minimum raw score will equate to a score of “67”.
• A passing raw score will equate to a score of “70”.
• A college ready score may equate to a score of “87”.
• All scores below, above, and in between will be scaled
based on a 100 point scale.
• What about students that fail to take the EOC exam? Will
the score be a “0” or an “I” for incomplete?

Credit Recovery
• There is no required grade ceiling for students who
complete a course through credit recovery.
• The district is exploring a potential uniform ceiling
for students who complete a course through credit
recovery.
• What are some of the implications for forcing a
grade ceiling on credit recovery courses?
• What are some of the concerns regarding credit
recovery and STAAR EOC?
Credit by Exam
• The 15% requirement does not apply to students
who receive credit by exam (CBE).
• Students who receive credit using a CBE are still
required to take the EOC to fulfill graduation
requirements (i.e. cumulative score).
• The EOC itself is not a credit by exam.
DC, AP and IB
• Students enrolled in advanced courses for which
there is an EOC must take the EOC and the 15%
requirement will apply to their final grade.
• EOC results will not be weighted unlike semester
grades for advanced courses.
• EOC 15% calculations will be applied to the weighted
semester grades.
• TEA is researching whether or not to allow the DC,
AP, and IB exams to substitute for the EOC and may
implement this in 2014.
