Required Tests for Graduation
If a student meets or exceeds the college- and career-ready threshold score on the Smarter Balanced ELA test as a 10th grader, he or she will not have to take that test in 11th grade.** “Exit exam” scores (for graduation requirements) are separate from what are known as the “college- and career-ready” scores.
