Final Exam Information Edition

Important Dates

Spring Semester 2013 will end May 10. I have enjoyed instructing your child this semester and would like to inform you of important dates, deadlines, and requirements for the remaining days of the semester. Click on the image below to view details about the dates, deadlines, and requirements. If you have questions regarding the dates or requirements indicated, please communicate with me.

Opportunity to Earn Extra Points

Your child has been provided with details on how he/she can earn extra points towards one assignment submission for the second half of the semester. You can view the specific details on the course home page once you access your parent account. The purpose of this opportunity is to allow your child a chance to demonstrate that he/she has a better understanding of the course content that was not mastered previously. The deadline to submit the assignment is 5:00 p.m., May 6. This opportunity is optional but one that I would recommend for those students who desire to improve their grade percentage.

Objective Exam Details

The objective exam will count for 20% of your child's final grade. The exam can be attempted on May 8 or May 9. Your child must attempt the exam prior to 11:59 p.m., May 9. Only one attempt is allowed so once your child accesses the exam, he/she must have ample time to complete the exam. Details regarding each of the course exams are provided below.
