EOG Preparation from the Public Schools of North Carolina

Students are tested on their mastery of North Carolina's learning standards, which you can review from the Public Schools of North Carolina website. These standards are called the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. You can download these standards for every subject area, including math, science and language arts.

Once you and your 8th grader have reviewed all the standards, he or she can take practice EOG tests, which are also provided by the Public Schools of North Carolina. Released tests can be incredibly useful when your child's getting ready for a standardized test that affects his or her placement. The tests are PDF files, so you can download and print them.

Games and Activities from Fact Monster

Because it's likely that your 8th grader is inundated with EOG information at school, it can sometimes be beneficial to deviate from the norm at home. A solid learning resource that can help your child prepare for the EOG test is Fact Monster. Click anywhere on this site, and you're likely to find EOG help. Fact Monster not only provides test practice, but also games, activities and other educational resources. For instance, if your child is struggling in math, you can find a list of formulas, a list of common repeating decimals and help with finding square roots.

Extra Practice Tests from EdInformatics

Here, you can find practice standardized tests from every state. Even though North Carolina has its own state standards, you may want to use tests from other states to give your child additional practice. Look for states that have standardized tests that are similar to the EOG. In Texas, for instance, 8th grade students are also tested on math, reading and science. You can download a full-length released test for each subject.
