Beaufort County high school students show mixed results on end-of-course examinations

Posted: Updated:

The South Carolina Department of Education announced today that students in Beaufort County had mixed results on state tests administered at the end of key high school courses in 2013. 

According to a news release from the Beaufort County School District, South Carolina students' scores on end-of-course exams count for 20 percent of final grades in Algebra 1, English 1, Biology and U.S. History and Constitution.

They say that in those four courses during 2013, Beaufort County School District students improved their percentages of passing grades in two courses and saw lower percentages in two. District students' passing percentages in 2013 exceeded state averages in two of the four subjects tested: English 1 and Biology.

The release adds that the biggest improvements on all four exams were at Battery Creek High School.
