This series of policy briefs from the Center on Education Policy (CEP) discuss a variety of information that school exit exams reveal about student achievement. The first brief discusses the shift in ways of determining how students earn a high school diploma - previously using minimum competency exams to current and future wide use of end-of-course exams. The second brief discusses use of exit exam pass rates to determine gaps in low performing students. The final brief discusses how exit exams have highlighted low pass rates for students with disabilities and have in turn led to finding alternative pathways to graduation for students with disabilities.
