NCCS Testing by the Numbers


Do you have any idea of the number of state required tests that were given in Newton-Conover City Schools’ high schools in January? We have tallied the number of state required tests that occurred at both Newton-Conover High School and Discovery High School at the end of the first semester. North Carolina’s Department of Public Instruction required that we give:


  • 271 End-of-Course Exams (EOCs)
  • 461 Career and Technical Education Exams (CTE)
  • 1387 North Carolina Final Exams (NCFEs)

Newton-Conover City Schools’ high school students took a combined total of 2119 exams during a state mandated 5 day window. We would like to thank the staff and students for working so diligently during this busy and hectic time!
