State High School Tests: Exit Exams and Other Assessments


"CEP's 9th annual report on high school exit exams discusses new developments in state high school exit exam policies and how students enrolled in school in states with these policies are affected. This year's report finds that 28 states required high school exit exams in the 2009-10 school year (up from 26 in 2009), and public schools in those states enroll 83 percent of the nation's students of color and more than three-quarters of the country's low-income pupils. For the first time, this year's report also includes information about graduation requirements in states that do not require exit exams."
