Transcript of Why Do We Have to Take EOGs?

Why do we have to take these stupid EOGs? The state makes you take them. Your teachers need to know you can do the work. They need to know the school is doing its job. They need to compare all students statewide. They need to show the taxpayers that their money is well spent. The tests show if you can read, write, and show math and science skills on your grade level. Because you take similar tests every year, we can see how you have grown in learning. all students take the same tests.
all students are held to the same standards.
all students must take the tests under the same conditions. If you are making the grade each year, we know you will have the skills to make it in the real world someday. N.C. Report Cards
