Week 35 - Yearlong

Week 35 Update

This week we will start working on the final project and exam….yep….this is it!

Make sure to check your grade and to stay on top of your assignments.

Final Exam Details

The exam for Spanish 1 with NCVPS has two parts: project and quiz. The quiz assesses listening and reading comprehension and the project is for students to demonstrate mastery of speaking and writing concepts taught in Spanish 1 (written/oral presentation skills in Spanish – students are expected to be at a Novice Mid for writing, listening and reading and Novice Low for speaking at the end of Spanish 1).


  • Students get ONE ATTEMPT on the final exam quiz portion.

  • The quiz is only accessible one time, students should not begin it until they have plenty of time to start and complete the assignment. Make sure to have plenty of battery power before beginning the quiz.

  • The quiz must be completed in one sitting, it cannot be started and stopped or left idle for later


Students will have a full week to complete the project portion due on May 20th at 11:59pm. As soon as they complete the last required assignment in Unit 8 the project portion becomes available to them.

  • Students can work on the project throughout the week.

  • Students can use previous assignments/feedback of THEIR OWN work to help them on this project – they may not use work belonging to other students or that of an online translator, website, tutor, etc (see academic integrity expectation below).

  • Students must us a web 2.0 tools (ie. not PowerPoint). They can use Prezi, Padlet, Google Slides, Authorstream, etc. any tool they’ve used so far this year.

  • The project must contain written and spoken elements, including images and citations to get maximum credit.
