For each semester, teachers must give a cumulative exam or assign a culminating project to take the place of an exam. These exams or projects will be called midterm exams (at the end of semester 1) and final exams (at the end of semester 2).
b. Schedule of Exams
Exams must be given or projects must be presented on the assigned dates. Teachers must test only on the designated dates.
c. Length of Exams
On designated mid-term and year-end exam days, the school will follow the SBDM approved exam schedule.
d. Exam Value
The midterm and final exam grades combined can be no more than 20% of the final course grade. Teachers and department leaders will determine the weight of the exams.
e. End of Course
In courses required to give an EOC, the EOC will replace the final exam for the course. The EOC will constitute the district-determined percentage of the student’s final grade in each course.
f. AP Courses
In AP courses, teachers are still required to give a final exam or culminating project. AP teachers may choose to give a final exam as part of the review process before the AP exam as long as it is completed before school wide AP testing begins.
