 Final Exams/EOCT (see schedule below)

 Students are required to take final assessments administered as scheduled below.

 

End of Course Tests (EOCTs) are mandated by the state of Georgia for students enrolled in B and Y sections of 9th Literature, American Literature, Economics, U.S. History, Biology, Physical Science, CCGPS Coordinate Algebra, and CCGPS Analytic Geometry. Students are required to take theses tests at the times listed below in a face-to-face setting proctored by CVA Staff and must bring a picture ID: driver's license, CCSD student ID, yearbook, etc. EOCT final scores represent either 15% or 20% of the student's final grade dependent upon the 9th grade entry date.

 

 No electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, etc.) are allowed in the test administration area. Time limitations are placed on the EOCT therefore students should arrive on time for testing. Students who arrive late will not be admitted and will have to attend the scheduled makeup session.

 

Final Exams: Students in courses without EOCTs will take Final Exams that are administered online and are available over a 48 hour period. Final Exams are timed and students are given 1-2 hours to take the exam, which must be completed in one sitting. It is recommended that students take their final exam early, on the first day, in case they encounter any problems.

 

EOCT and Final Exams are given only at the dates and times listed below.
