The purpose of the Algebra I and English 10 End of Course Assessments (ECAs) is to serve as the graduation examination requirement for the class of 2018 and any adult test takers seeking an Indiana diploma. Every Indiana student in the 2018 graduating class must demonstrate mastery of the Indiana Academic Standards assessed by these ECAs.

The Algebra I and English 10 End of Course Assessments (ECAs) are criterion-referenced assessments developed specifically as graduation examinations for students enrolled in grade 12 in the 2017-2018 school year.

English/Language Arts and ISTEP+ Grade 10 Math assessments are the graduation examinations for students enrolled in grades 10 and 11 in the 2017-2018 school year.

The Algebra I ECA is based on standards adopted in 2000; the English 10 ECA is based on standards adopted in 2006.
