A study guide for the exam will be posted on my website at the beginning of each six weeks. The study guide will be due of the day of the unit exam and will be scored as two daily grades. Two Test Grades for the six weeks will be project based. Important Information An in-class exam review will be given the day prior to each exam. If a student is absent on the review day they are still required to take the exam on the scheduled exam day. This is due to the fact that nothing new will be covered on the review day. It is simply a review of material already covered in previous class sessions. If a student is absent on an exam day, that absence must be EXCUSED by the office. Otherwise the student will not be allowed to make up the test and will be given a zero for their test grade. The above dates may be changed to account for school scheduling changes. Students will be informed in plenty of time to make adjustments to their calendars.
