World History AB - Course Update

Mrs. Hall - July 7, 2014

Greetings Parents and Students,

I can hardly believe it! This is the last week of class for your GaVS World History AB course. Please read through the newsletter for important information about the last week of class and end of the semester.

The last day to turn in assignments is Wednesday July 9, 2014.

All assignments must be handed in prior to 11:59 p.m. to be accepted for credit. Dropboxes, quizzes, and discussions will all close at this time. There are no extensions past this date. All work must be submitted prior to taking the final exam.

Final Exams

  • Final exams open Thursday, July 10 @ 12:01 am and close Thursday, July 10 @ 11:59 pm. Exams are only available during this 24 hour time frame. There are no early exams.



  • Once the exam opens it must be completed within the 90 minutes allotted for the exam and within one sitting.
  • There are NO extensions. There are NO exemptions.
  • Be sure that you complete your exams using a trusty computer with a trusty connection – NO EXCUSES!!! Final exams will not be reset.
  • You need to make sure you have the latest Java version and latest browser version, preferably Chrome or Firefox.




  • Objective Final Exam (20%) The objective final exam (multiple choice) is a cumulative exam covering all of the material covered this semester. The format of the exam is very similar to the exams you are used to taking. To prepare for the exam, use any notes you have, take a look at the review sections of the content, listen to corresponding Adobe Session links. Revisit your assignments for all units as well as re-reading the quiz and test feedback (very useful).

When can I find out my grade?

  • Grades will be released to your transcript and local schools on Thursday 7/17 as long as there are no issues. BE AWARE: It is against our school policy to give you your grade or tell you whether or not you passed. Please contact your school facilitator for this information.
