STAAR/EOC Testing

STAAR/EOC Testing explanation:

The State of Texas requires all high school students to take and pass five End of Course Exams (EOC), also known as STAAR tests, in order to meet state testing graduation requirements. By state law, if a student takes the classes English 1, English 2, Algebra 1, Biology, and US History, they must take the STAAR/EOC test for that subject as well in the same year the course was taken.
