End-of-Course Exams


The Arkansas Comprehensive Testing, Assessment, and Accountability Program (ACTAAP) includes End-of-Course Examinations for students completing Algebra I or the equivalent, Geometry or the equivalent and Biology for high school graduation credit.  The End-of-Course examinations are administered at mid-year and spring each year.

Each examination consists of multiple-choice and open-response questions that directly assess student knowledge.  The Arkansas Algebra I and Geometry Mathematics Curriculum Frameworks and the Arkansas Biology Science Curriculum Frameworks are the basis for development of the Spring End-of-Course Examinations.

Results of the examinations will be provided for all students, schools, and districts to be used as the basis for instructional change.

The End-of-Course Exam results are posted in the Archive Reports Center
