Volunteers Needed for Testing (EOG Proctors)

DDMS has many proctor spots that must be filled for end of year testing.   Parent Proctors play a tremendous role in ensuring that your children receive the best possible testing environment that we can provide.

Duke TIP

The Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) provides students with an opportunity to take the SAT or ACT as 7th graders.  The Wake County qualifying scores are based on EOG results over two years.  Because no EOG data has been released by NCDPI for 2012-13, present 7th graders may use their scores from 2011-2012.  To qualify a student must be a current seventh grader with a 2011-2012 EOG score at or above the 95th percentile.  If you are interested in more information, please pick up a brochure from the Guidance Office or use the Duke TIP website www.tip.duke.edu  The Duke TIP website also lists a variety of "non-EOG" tests which may be used to qualify students.  If you cannot find the information you need on the website, please feel free to contact them by phone at (919) 668-9100.
