Math End-of-Course Exams
High school math End-of-Course (EOC) exams began in spring 2011, as required by state law RCW 28A.655.066. These EOC exams replaced the math High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) and are given within the last three weeks of the school year. Each school determines its own testing schedule.
The EOC exams are based on the revised K–12 Mathematics Learning Standards.
They are given to students in grades 9–12 who are taking those respective classes,
or have taken the exam but have not yet passed.
House Bill 1412 was signed into law in April 2011, meaning:
Students in the classes of 2013 and 2014 have to pass ONE math EOC exam
(algebra 1/integrated math 1 OR geometry/integrated math 2) to be eligible for a
diploma. If they take a math EOC in the spring and do not pass, their first
retake opportunity is in January/February.
See the chart on the State Testing page for requirements for other classes.
