End Of Instruction Test Results
News Release -- (8/29/2007)

Collinsville High School students post good E.O.I. test scores again. Algebra I scores had the biggest gain going from 47% to 62% passing. U.S. History rose 1% to 75%, while English I scores remained at 77%. Biology slipped 4% from 69% to 65%. We are currently assessing ways to increase our Biology scores to reach or surpass the 70% mark.
I want to thank the students, teachers, and parents for helping to emphasize the importance of scoring well on the E.O.I. tests. Students who graduate in 2012 will have to pass four out of seven E.O.I. test to graduate. GO CARDS!

Additional Information (8/30/2007):
Comparing State EOI Test Results for 2007 with Collinsville's shows we are above the state level in all but Algebra 1. However, we still increased our Algebra 1 scores from 47% to 62% for a 15% gain, and though Biology fell 4%, we are still 14% above the state average. The staff, students, and parents of Collinsville High School students will continue to strive to increase our scores. Thank you for your great coverage of CHS!
