The CDOS test is a test students can take to either replace their U.S. History test, or Global test. This test consists of real life situations such as things that happen in the work environment, practice on your resume, and also learn to read pay stubs and understand what everything on it means.
The reason for this test is so that students don’t have to pass both U.S. History and Global Regents exam. Some students are really good and get high scores on both of those exams. Then there are other students that aren’t very good in Global or U.S. or that just might be a subject they don’t major in. Senior Melissa Caso is excited for our CDOS test coming up. “I took the global exam three times and failed, this is a really good opportunity for me,” says Caso.
This test makes it a bit easier for students to graduate here at East High School. Some students get really nervous at the end of their 12th grade year if they have to pass a test. The reason being that if they don’t pass all 5 of their Regents exams they will not get the opportunity to walk the stage until they do so. This test also gives students the opportunity to learn real life skills that we will need after we graduate. For further information and to see if the CDOS test is right for you, see your counselor as soon as possible.
