  • On Wednesday the NC House passed a bill that would eliminate End of Course tests, replacing them with the ACT or SAT. HB 486 calls for the replacement of these tests beginning in the 2023-24 school year and for the hiring of a contractor to evaluate the national standardized tests against the NC curriculum to recommend a good replacement. The bill also calls for the replacement of WorkKeys tests taken by students in career and technical education but did not specify what specific credential would replace these tests.
