EoCs: Assessments Created by New Mexico’s Teachers for New Mexico’s Students
End of Course (EoC) Exams have multi-tiered uses and help meet many educational objectives in New Mexico. Passing scores on New Mexico EoCs are indicative of a student being minimally proficient as described in the performance level descriptors and course alignment to curricular standards. Educators use EoC results to make curricular decisions that improve achievement outcomes for students. EoC results are also used to establish a measure of teacher effectiveness, to create common measures for course content and as an alternate demonstration of competency for graduation requirements for students.
