About the Exam
Washington State high school students are required to take the Washington End-of-Course (EOC) Biology Grade 10 test during the last three weeks of the school year for federal accountability. The class of 2017 and later might also need the test to meet a graduation requirement. The test consists of 26-29 multiple-choice items, 1-4 completion items and five short answer items. Test administration is 150 minutes with 30 minutes dedicated to directions and the distribution of materials and 120 minutes used to take the exam. Scores for the test are based on achievement levels, also known as Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs). Students' scores can fall into the basic, proficient and advanced PLD categories.
Preparing & Registering for the Washington EOC - Biology Grade 10 Test
This course is broken into chapters with short video and text lessons that explore all the topics you can expect to see on the exam. Prepare by reviewing the lessons in the sequence you choose based on your knowledge of biology. Revisit those you don't fully comprehend, and use timelines to skip to key topics within the videos you don't need to rewatch in full. Instructors in each lesson explore biology topics by providing you with in-depth explanations and thorough examples. Make sure you understand scientific investigation, photosynthesis, cell respiration and biology, DNA, chromosomes, fertilization, populations, biological evolution and much more before the day of the test. In addition to taking short quizzes and chapter exams to test your knowledge, you have access to a comprehensive practice course exam. Also, take advantage of the ability to submit questions about lesson topics to experts eager to offer assistance.
Though the test is typically taken at the end of the school year, it's good to contact the district coordinator for the specific test schedule and preparation requirements for your school. The ideal prerequisite for the test is a biology course. But if you haven't taken a biology course, you will still have to take the Washington EOC Biology Grade 10 test since it is used to determine school and district Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and is required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act. The exception to this rule is students receiving special education services who are allowed to take the Washington - Access to Instruction and Measurement (WA-AIM) in the 11th grade.
Washington End-of-Course exams are administered by the State of Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, which is not affiliated with Study.com.
