No. We did have assessment tests but they didnt determine whether or not you graduated. But if you did well on them you got money for college.

We had an exit exam in the Bay Area. (Don't know if it was all over Cali.)

I passed it with like 95% or something while I was a Freshman though. Woulda took a lot of talent to fail that thing.

Jersey had proficiency tests such as HSPA and Terranova but they just determined placement for the remedial classes if people failed them. You could stillgraduate if you failed every one of them.

yep

GGT down here in Georgia

I remember when some white kids were on the local news complaining that they couldnt graduate because they failed, talking about how the GGT was unfair. All 4parts(math, science, social studies, english) were extra easy, and on that basic +$*@. Only a complete @*%+$** would fail any part
