Grades are Updated

Please be sure that you log into the Parent Portal and view your student's grades. Students, always check the gradebook under Grades, but also click on the individual Dropbox and Quiz items to read any feedback that I may leave. This is the primary way that I communicate with you about the content.

How to Prepare for Your Final Exam

All GaVS Forensic Science students will take a traditional final exam. All final exams consist of one part, an objective exam, that counts 20% of the final grade. The objective final exam is composed of multiple choice questions.


Students will have a 90 minute block of time of their choosing anytime on Wednesday or Thursday, December 7-8. Students must take the final exam in one sitting. They may not enter into the exam and come back at a later point.


To help prepare for the final exam, your student has access to the questions missed on their old tests and quizzes. Reviewing these will help students with concepts from the beginning of the course. Additional resources will be posted within the next week.


Our last Assignment Due Date is December 1.


Students will receive instruction at the SLS next week, November 30, for the best way to prepare for their final exam. Students have access to old tests, quizzes, notes, and worksheets to prepare. It might be helpful for you to quiz your student on previously learned key terms and other important information.


As always, please contact me if you have any questions or comments!
