Additional proposed revisions provide clarity and consistency in the language across multiple documents.  The revisions were a result of the 2018 College- and Career-Ready Social Studies Framework revision and as such, DC U.S. History II is the dual credit course for meeting graduation requirements in lieu of EOC assessment requirement for U.S. History.
