GRADUATION TESTING

The following is a statement issued by the State of Tennessee regarding graduation testing:

•·         Students who originally entered high school prior to or during the 2000-2001 school year that return for a high school diploma, and have not passed Competency math and/or language, must pass the corresponding TCAP Mathematics and/or Language Arts assessment.  If these students have passed the assessment for graduation, but take a related Gateway course to complete coursework, they must take the corresponding test as an End of Course assessment.

•·         Students transferring into the public school system either from out-of-state or in-state (private or home school) must satisfy the TCAP/EOC requirements.  (Credit in one or more of the EOC subjects does not satisfy this requirement.)
