This Course Closes on July 11th.... What Then?
If you are a student who is taking the EOCT after the course closes, you are advised to print/save the module information and any other materials before July 11. You will still have access to USA Test Prep for studying.
Students grades should be released on July 17th and are viewable in the student portal by selecting the grades link.* Questions about final grades should be directed to your facilitator.
*Public school students who have not yet taken the required EOCT will have a grade that reports as incomplete.
Things to Know if you're taking the Final Exam in the Course: (Private/Homeschool students)
- When is the exam? Log in and take the Final Exam on Thursday, July 10th between 12:00am and 11:59pm. The final exam is timed to 90 minutes. The exam must be taken in one sitting. There are no alternative testing dates. The exam will shut off at 11:59 whether you are finished or not.
What does the exam cover? The Final Exam is cumulative. This means it covers both semesters of Biology. The last unit of the course reviews both semesters and has required review quizzes built in to help you focus your studying.
- How much is the exam weighted? The Final Exam counts as 20% of your Course Grade for Biology B.
- Where do I find the exam? It is located in the same places where quizzes/tests are taken, at the bottom of the list. It is only visible during the time frame above.
A final note: Technical difficulties is not an excuse for not completing the final exam, as is stated in GAVS policy. It is the student's responsibility to plan ahead for enough time, a reliable computer, and a secure internet connection before beginning.
