  • High School Proficiency Exams (HSPE): Reading and writing tests
  • End-of-Course (EOC):Math and biology tests taken as students finish algebra 1/integrated math 1, geometry/integrated math 2, and biology
  • Merit’s Language Arts and Math software programs correlate to Washington’s Essential Academic Learning Requirements and can help students prepare for the Washington assessments.
