Test scores are among the many ways to find out how well a child is doing in school. Test scores allow parents to compare their child's performance with that of other students in the same grade at the school and with other students across North Carolina. However, test scores should always be considered along with all other available information provided about their child. During the final three weeks of the school year, students took the state-required multiple-choice North Carolina End-of-Grade Tests in Reading and Mathematics. This document is designed to assist parents in understanding the End-of-Grade Testing Parent/Teacher Report.
