State seeks feedback on U.S. History end-of-course exam achievement levels



Florida high school students will face the state's U.S. history end-of-course exam for the first time this spring. As students prepare to take the test, the Florida Department of Education is working to set the rating system for student results.

To establish the achievement levels 1-5 for the exam, the state is asking for public input on its proposal. Respondents can rate each item detailing what students should be able to do in each level, from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree." They can also make comments.

Want to help set the marks? Visit the assessment website and just mark that you're a Florida parent, and you can get started. The EOC is slated to become a graduation requirement as well as counting toward a student's grade in the course, so what you say can matter.
