We are all working to score 4s and 5s on our EOG (End of Grade) Test this year! The EOG typically has 75 questions – all multiple choice. Here’s the breakdown in percentages of questions students will see on their EOG for each unit/topic of study:

Science EOG Breakdown

Now, take a look at some options to ensure we can be best prepared for the EOG:

1) Come to class, daily!

2) Extended Day tutoring:

    • Mondays & Tuesdays from 3:30 – 5:00, see Mrs. Barton for an Extended Day Program letter.
    • Get extra assistance and review of our curriculum so you’re READY for the EOG!

3) Be familiar with this periodic table as you will be able to use it on your EOG:

NC Public Schools Periodic Table 

4) Practice on your own with these Released Items

EOG Grade 8 Sample Items

NC Science Released Items – Form E (2009 – Check your answers on the last pages)

NC Science Released Form (Recent: 2012-2013! check answers on last pages)

As a reminder, here is the NC Department of Public Instruction’s description of a student who scores a 4 in science:

Achievement Level 4: Students performing at this level have superior command of the knowledge and skills contained in the North Carolina Essential Standards (ES) for Science assessed at their grade level and are academically well-prepared to engage successfully in this content area. Students understand the properties of matter and analyze the changes that occur when matter interacts in an open and closed container. They analyze and evaluate the environmental implications associated with the various methods of obtaining, managing, and using energy resources. Students understand the hydrosphere and evaluate human impact on local water systems, and analyze the effects of the hydrosphere on humans. They analyze and evaluate the history of Earth and its life forms based on evidence of change recorded in fossil records and landforms. Students analyze the hazards caused by agents of diseases that affect living organisms. They evaluate how biotechnology is used to affect living organisms. Students analyze and evaluate how organisms interact with and respond to the biotic and abiotic components of their environment. They analyze the evolution of organisms and landforms based on evidence, theories, and processes that affect the Earth over time. Students understand and evaluate how food provides energy and molecules required for survival, growth, and repair of organisms (including plants). They can analyze and explain the relationship between respiration and digestion as it pertains to the health of the body.”

Let's make this happen
