Pennsylvania Keystone Exam for Biology
Keystone exams are Pennsylvania's end of course assessments in specific content areas. The Keystone Biology Exam consists of two test modules that take 1 to 1.5 hours each. Both Modules will be administered during two consecutive school days. The
test consists of multiple choice questions and open ended responses
that are designed to assess student comprehension of Biology. The
Keystone exam replaces the PSSA science exam and will count towards
school annual yearly progress (AYP).
The Biology exam will be administered to all current juniors, and any sophomore and freshmen students enrolled in a biology course.
Current junior students and semester 1 sophomore and freshmen students enrolled in a biology course will take the exam this January during the testing window .
Current semester 2 sophomore and freshmen students enrolled in a biology course will
take the exam this May during the testing window.
Tests will be administered at Palmyra Area High School during the school day.
A number of resources are available to aid students in test preparation during their biology course. The Keystone Biology Review Moodle will
provide students and parents with access to online resources including
review materials, practice test questions, and Study Island access.
