    NC Check-Ins Information

    NC Check-Ins are interim assessments developed by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) that are aligned to North Carolina grade-level content standards (for reading and mathematics) and North Carolina Essential Standards (for science). 

    The main purpose of NC Check-Ins is to provide students, teachers, and parents, with immediate in-depth action data and a reliable estimate of students’ current performance on the selected subset of content standards. Both the end-of-grade (EOG) tests and the end-of course (EOC) tests share a common item bank with the NC Check-Ins, which then exposes NC Check-In students to similar item types and rigor found on the EOGs and EOCs.

    The NC Check-In administration dates are as follows:

    NC Check-In 1:

    • ELA 4-8 and G4 Math: 17 Oct- 1 Nov 
    • G5 Math: 7-20 Nov
    • G5 Science: Oct-Nov

    NC Check-In 2: January-February
    NC Check-In 3: March-April
