End of Course Test - Erasure Analysis Reports
The End of Course Test (EOCT) is a standardized assessment administered to students enrolled in high school core content courses. It is designed to measure how well students ascertain the knowledge and skills within the state’s curriculum, the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) outlined in the Common Core GPS and provide diagnostic information to help students identify strengths and areas of need in learning.
The Governor's Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) is charged with auditing and inspecting schools and Local Education Agencies (O.C.G.A. § 20-14-26). An analysis of the 2014 Spring EOCT answer documents conducted by the state’s vendor, NCS Pearson, Inc., showed an unusually high number of answers changed from wrong to right (WTR) in some classrooms. Based on a conservative criterion for identifying unusual results, GOSA makes the recommendations in this report to help eliminate test misconduct and to help students adversely affected where applicable.
