Public school students enrolled in Biology 1 must participate in the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) Biology 1 End-of-Course (EOC) Assessment. During the 2018-19 school year, students taking the Biology 1 EOC will have the opportunity to test during one of the following administrations throughout the year:
