Graduation Requirements are the courses a student needs to take (and pass) in order to graduate.
They are listed in terms of Carnegie Units. A course counts as one Carnegie Unit if there has been 120 hours of class time. This is usually the same as a full year course.
End of Course (EOC) Assessments are tests students take after each course to be sure they understand the course content.
They must get a certain score to be able to count the course and earn the Carnegie Unit.
