Graduating Class of 2018

Purpose

The purpose of the End of Course Assessments is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts and Mathematics. The End of Course Assessments (ECAs) are criterion-referenced assessments developed specifically for students completing their instruction in Algebra I or English 10.

The purpose of the test blueprints, designed with the help of Indiana classroom teachers, is to make transparent to educators the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of students on the assessments.

The blueprints can be used as tools to:

  • Align expectations regarding mastery of the standards;
  • Identify the degree of emphasis of curricular components;
  • Assist and guide in prioritizing curriculum and instructional planning; and
  • Enhance classroom assessment.

The Item Samplers on this website provide information about ECAs for students, parents, educators and others. The items in each sampler are examples of the types of items found on ECAs. These examples can serve as models when teachers are constructing items for classroom assessment. It should be noted that the samplers are not practice tests.
