1 AzMERIT End of Course (EOC) in Algebra II is administered only to students who elect to take the course.
2 All students in these states are automatically enrolled in a mathematics course sequence that includes Algebra II, but with parental permission a student may modify (i.e., lessen) the Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III requirement or its equivalent course content or opt into another state diploma that includes a different set of course requirements that does not include Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III. Students in these states who modify the mathematics requirement will not be assessed using the Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III EOC (if one exists in the state).
3 In the District of Columbia, it will be a local option in 2017–18 to administer the PARCC Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III EOC assessments. The required high school mathematics assessments are Geometry or Integrated Mathematics II.
4 If eligible students are present at school on SAT school day, they are expected to take the SAT exam.
5 Students in grades 9–11 must take the PARCC mathematics test that aligns to the course in which they are enrolled, with the following exception: students concurrently enrolled in two PARCC-aligned mathematics courses must take one PARCC test, but have the option to take both.
6 All students must take and pass five Regents exams in English language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and one pathway assessment.
7 The ACT and WorkKeys is administered to all students. North Dakota also gives districts an option to use grade 11 ACT in lieu of grade 11 North Dakota State Assessment for high school accountability assessments in English language arts and mathematics.
8 For the 2017–18 school year, Oklahoma will use the SAT as the state assessment. Oklahoma will allow local education agencies to choose the ACT, a locally selected, nationally recognized high school assessment as allowed under section 1111(b)(2)(H), in place of the SAT state assessment in reading/language arts and mathematics in high school for accountability purposes in spring 2018.
9 Beginning in spring 2016, STAAR Algebra II is available for districts to administer as optional assessments.
10 EOC exams in Algebra I/Integrated Mathematics I and Geometry/Integrated Mathematics II are based on previous Washington State Learning Standards in Mathematics. EOC exit exams are based on updated Washington State Learning Standards (Common Core), beginning in school year 2014–15. These EOC assessments are available through the class of 2018 as one way for students to meet the state’s high-stakes graduation requirement in mathematics. Beginning with the class of 2019, the state will use the Smarter Balanced exam for graduation.
NOTE: In this table, EOC represents End of Course assessments and PARCC is the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers.
