Let's Talk Exams!
High School Information:
All classes will have an exam that counts 25% of the overall grade.
During the week of December 7th, all non-EOC high school courses will have a teacher-made exam. Teacher-mades will count as 25% of a students' overall grade as well. Teachers have the flexibility to use various formats for their exams (projects, presentations, multiple-choice tests, etc). Students will receive information from teachers concerning their teacher-made exam. Remote students will not need to report to RECHS on a specific day to test for teacher-mades. (Please note, some classes might require students to report to school to submit projects.)
For the week of December 7th-11th (teacher-made exam week), we will follow a normal Monday/Tuesday 'AA Day' schedule, Wednesday remote instruction, and Thursday/Friday 'BB Day' schedule.
Students in Math I, Biology, English II and Math III will participate in an End-of-Course exam (EOCs). EOCs will be given during the week of December 14th-18th. We will follow an alternate schedule this week, as we will test on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Friday (12/18) will be a make-up exam day. We will test based upon subject. Please see the schedule below.
All remote students in Math I, Biology, English II and Math III must report to RECHS in-person for their End-of-Course exams. Remote students will report to school based upon their class period for a specific subject. Please see below for details. Last week, all remote students received a call/email allowing them to request transportation and/or lunch for the EOC exam week.
Students who DO NOT have EOCs will be on remote learning during the December 14-18th exam week and will not report to RECHS.
Students will also have exams in their college classes. The last day of college classes is December 14th. Instructors will communicate with students concerning exam expectations.
