The Arkansas Comprehensive Testing, Assessment, and Accountability Program (ACTAAP) includes a mid-year and Spring Biology End-of-Course Examination. The examination consists of multiple-choice and open-response questions that directly assess student knowledge.
The Arkansas Biology Science Curriculum Framework is the basis for development of the Biology End-of-Course Examination. The Arkansas Department of Education has contracted with Questar Assessment, Inc. (Questar) for the development, production, distribution, and collection of the Biology End-of-Course Examination materials.
Results of the Biology End-of-Course Examination will be provided for all students, schools, and districts to be used as the basis for instructional change.
