Below are links to the item samplers and practice tests for End of Course exams. These samplers and practice tests provide examples of items that cover each Reporting Category and Performance Indicator for the appropriate test. The examples illustrate the formats of the questions used to evaluate the student's mastery of the Performance Indicator.
EOC Practice Tests
|Set One||Set Two||Set Three|
As another optional resource for teachers, our academic support network (CORE regional offices) collaborated to remove all questions aligned to dropped SPIs on the TCAP practice tests. Adjustments were only made to assessments used for accountability. Those versions of the practice test are available on the CORE home page under CORE Resources.
Estimated Performance Level Cut Scores for State Practice Tests
The performance level cut scores in the link below are estimates provided by our testing vendor based on historical performance level cut scores from previously administered assessments. The overlap in the scores is intentional and meant to emphasize that these are simply ranges of scores meant to serve as general indicators for teachers related to the performance of their students in preparation for actual assessment administration.
EOC Item Samplers
Set Two EOC Item Samplers
|Mathematics Item Samplers||
|ELSA Algebra I||Algebra II|
|Science Item Samplers||Biology I||Cells||Interdependence||Heredity|
|Language Arts Item Samplers contain items linked to passages that cover multiple reporting categories. Each form will have examples of items from all of the possible reporting categories.|
|English III||ELSA English II|
Due to the volume of items available in these item samplers, they are broken down by relevant category for ease of use. Please note that, while the content of the item samplers will not change, we will be enhancing the graphics over the coming weeks to include numbering of items, page numbers, and the state performance indicator associated with each item.
