Final Exams


Final exams are given at the end of each semester to all students at all grade levels at the Gwinnett Online Campus. All final exams must be taken in person in a proctored setting at the GOC campus in Lawrenceville. The final exams are cumulative and summative assessments that help indicate the preparedness of students for the next course based on the knowledge gained in their current course. Failure to attend a test will result in a grade of 68 being issued until the test is taken. Please make sure to check the calendar and schedules for more specific information pertaining to exact dates and times of final exams.

End of Course (EOC)

The Georgia Milestone Assessment System consists of the End of Grade assessment in grades 3 – 8 and the End of Course assessment in grades 9 – 12. These exams are cumulative assessments that measure a student’s knowledge of state standards in specific content areas and/or courses. Assessments can have a variety of multiple choice and extended response questions. These are state mandated exams and students may not exempt from these assessments. You can refer to the End of Course link on the assessment page of our school website for more information.

What to Bring to Final Exams:

All high school students must bring a photo ID with them to take their exam. Students will need a pencil and the use of a calculator (cell phones are not able to be used as calculators) in their mathematics and science courses.

School Policy:

If a student's final exam grade is twenty-five (25) or more percentage points lower than his/her test average for the semester, Gwinnett Online Campus may require the student to take a second chance cumulative assessment in a proctored setting to ensure the student's mastery of the course material. The grade on this second chance cumulative assessment must fall within twenty-five (25) percentage points of the student's original test average. If the student's score is twenty-five (25) percentage points lower than the original test average, then the second chance cumulative assessment grade will replace all summative assessment grades.
