Teaching to the Test The landmark education initiative, No Child Left Behind, has dramatically changed daily life in the classroom. Teaching to major new tests like the End of Course (EOC) and the End of Grade (EOG) have dominated the curriculum and not always in a positive way according to some critics. We'll examine these tests, how they were created, how they work, and how they've changed the way teachers teach.
