End-of-Grade Test Results

End-of-Grade Tests

In grades 3 through 8 Transylvania County students take end-of-grade reading and math tests developed by the state of North Carolina.  These tests are administered in mid-May of each school year. 

State-wide writing tests were not given between 2002-2003 and 2004-2005.  Writing was tested in grades 4 and 7 and scored locally according to earlier state criteria.

 

The state of North Carolina no longer ranks performance by systems.

 

Earlier End-of-Grade test results and comparisons between Transylvania County scores and state-wide averages are shown on the table below.
