I have had a lot of students asking me for a review for the EOC and unfortunately there isn’t much out there just yet. Since this is the first time we will be seeing the test, the only thing we have is this document from TEA outlining the concepts that could be tested. You can read that document here if you’re interested.
Even though Texas hasn’t given an EOC in the past, other states have. So after a bit of research I found a pretty comprehensive document (with answer included) that I thought might help. So if you’re interested in practicing your skills before next Thursday’s EOC, try looking here for some problems.
There are several cummulative practice tests, but I think the pre-requisite test looked really good and thorough.
This is not something I am assigning or will have worked out answers to. However, I am more than happy, any morning or afternoon, to go through some of these problems with you. Let me know what I can do to help. I think all my students are going to do great on the test because you have all worked super hard this year and learned a lot of Geometry!
One last week of testing, then we can focus on finishing up the semester and getting onto summer!
As you all know, this year has been a crazy testing year and it’s not over yet! Next week is the EOC testing week and then we have final exams to worry about. Since the state decided EOC’s will NOT count as an exam grade for this year’s freshman class, the district decided to do something a bit different. Please download the document below, read through it, and let me know if you have any questions. This document applies to both PreAP/Honors Geometry as well as Regular Geometry.
I know this is a crazy time for everyone, but the best thing to do is be prepared by being aware of what you’re up against! Let me know if there is anything I can do to make things easier to understand for you!!
We are just about to the end of the first “9 weeks” (which is really more like twelve but whose counting, right?) For our sanity, let’s call it a marking period instead. At the end of every marking period we offer a cumulative retake test that covers all the tests we’ve taken in that period and can raise the students testing average as high as a 75%. To qualify, you (the student) must have a testing average of below a 75. If you do, you have to attend one tutorial either before or after school and then show up to take the test the next day before or after school. You’ll get one hour and as long as you make higher than your original testing average, your grade will be adjusted (up to a 75%). If you think you qualify, you need to sign up Monday, March 19th during class.
Here are the tutorial times you’ll need:
Tutorials: Before School – Ms. Brown Room 2312 6:30 – 7:30
After School – Mr. Garcia Room 2322 2:30 – 3:30
Testing: Before School – Ms. Harris Room 2311 6:30 – 7:30
After School – Ms. Harris Room 2311 2:45 – 3:45
Please don’t be tardy for testing, you will not be granted additional time.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Have a great break!!
Well, first semester is already over! You all have done some great work and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish in the spring. Have a wonderful break and I’ll see you all in a few weeks.
