bulls. Either way, we are certainly down with the
longhorn-sized enthusiasm that Texans seem to share…
…only it’s not just mesquite and high school football that tickle our spurs.
We want to help you grab life by the horse-collar and tackle it to the ground.
Hopefully the refs will be looking the other way.
In Texas, that means taking the End-of-Course, or “EOC”, assessments.
At least it’s better than having to take the “End of Times” assessments. There’s
a lot more riding on those. Now, you may feel the EOC is about as welcome
as a skunk at a lawn party. But with Shmoop’s help, you’ll be saying
“howdy” to some mighty fine test results. We’ll hook you up with guides for Algebra
one and two, geometry, biology, chemistry, physics, English one to three, world geography,
world history and US History. Most of those guides are available on our
site now; others will be added in 2013.
Depending on how comfortable you feel with the material…whether it’s cowboy boots
or diagnostics… …you can either take our lower-level courses…
…which measure readiness for advanced high school coursework…
…or you can take our higher-level courses, which measure college readiness.
Taking and passing the EOC will be part of the graduation requirements beginning with
the freshman class of 2012… …so it’s worth being prepared.
After all, you don’t want the test-takers to think this is your first rodeo.
And keep in mind that EOC assessment scores are worth 15 percent of your final course
grade. So the sooner you accept how important this
test is and decide to take the bull by the horns, the better off you’ll be.
As we always say, you can put your boots in the oven, but that don’t make ‘em biscuits.
We love us some Texas barbecue. We’re huge fans of the [Cowboys/Texans, depending on
who is reading this.] We remember the Alamo. In short, we’re Texas through and through…
except that we don’t live there. We’re thinking of getting a vacation home there
