Upcoming Tests

INFORM: Module 14 Timed Response

Thursday, April 23rd, 4pm

This is an online event.

Thursday, April 23 and Friday, April 24 - Module 13/14 Written Test will be administered. All students are expected to take it on one of those days. There will be no exceptions for any student. Remember, you have 25 minutes to complete the test.

INSTRUCT: Multitasking

At this time of year, we are all pulled in multiple directions. How many of you have multitasked? You are working on homework, socializing, and listening to music at the same time. Do you think multitasking works? Read this article from Psychology Today about the Myth of Multitasking.

INFORM: Monday, April 27 through Thursday, April 30 - Practice Tests

You will take the first two of these AP College Board style tests in preparation for the upcoming AP College Board Exam May 4. You may opt to take the third practice test. If you take the third practice test, it will drop the lowest grade of the three practice tests. This means that if you did not do well on the first practice test, you should take the third one to replace the grade.

  • Practice Test 1 - Monday, April 27 and Tuesday, April 28 - will open at 7 am Monday, April 27 and close 10 pm that night. It will reopen again for the last time at 7 am Tuesday, April 28 and close permanently at 10 pm that night.
  • Practice Test 2 - Tuesday, April 28 and Wednesday, April 29 - will open at 7 am Tuesday, April 28 and close 10 pm that night. It will reopen again for the last time at 7 am Wednesday, April 29 and close permanently at 10 pm that night.
  • Practice Test 3 - Wednesday, April 29 and Thursday, April 30 - will open at 7 am Wednesday, April 29 and close 10 pm that night. It will reopen again for the last time at 7 am Thursday, April 30 and close permanently at 10 pm that night.
  • These tests will only be open from 7 am to 10 pm daily. No exceptions so you need to plan accordingly if you take the course at home.
  • These tests will be 100 questions and you will have 70 minutes to complete it. Any question not answered counts against you. The grade stands. Why? This is how the AP College Board Exam works so make sure you are prepared and ready to complete the test.
  • All students are required to take two of the Practice Tests even if you are not taking the AP College Board Exam May 4.

Don't forget the LIVE review sessions - both to help review AND for Extra Credit

EXTRA CREDIT DETAILS!

Students have reported to us in past years that these review sessions are VERY helpful.However, to encourage you to attend as many sessions as possible, your teacher will award extra credit based on the number of FULL sessions you attend (that means you have to stay the whole hour!)


Students who:

  • Attend 3 full sessions: extra 100 assignment grade
  • Attend 5 full sessions: extra 100 assignment grade AND drop lowest quiz
  • Attend 7+ full sessions: extra 100 assignment grade, drop lowest quiz, AND 5 points on lowest test grade.
These extra credit options apply to 4th quarter ONLY and are only awarded for attending the LIVE sessions. (We cannot go back and change previously reported grades)

CELEBRATE: Focus on exam preparation
