ABSTRACT
High school exit exams are used to assess high school students' achievements as they near graduation. Though they were originally instituted as minimum competency exams, which were meant to ensure that students met minimum graduation requirements, today they have expanded to include end of course and standards based exams. With all of these exams, students must achieve or exceed minimum scores in order to graduate. Schools and school districts may offer students who do not initially pass the exams remedial courses, multiple retests, alternative testing, or the opportunity to prove their competencies through other means.
