    End-of-Grade and End-of-Course Tests
     
    During the school year, students take various tests required by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. These tests include end-of-course and end-of-grade tests for students in grades 3-12. 
     
    End-of-course tests for grades 9-12 are administered twice a year – at the end of the first semester in December and at the end of the second semester in May. End-of-grade tests for grades 3-8 are administered in May.
