- If an exam is disrupted by an evacuation or emergency drill, it may be given the following day.
- Music and Physical Education may give exams on any day.
- Since every subject area has two days where exams are permitted, it would be rare that an exam could not be given in a particular week. In the event this does occur, another day can be used but should be discussed with the students.
- Major subject teachers should coordinate their efforts to minimize exams being given on the same day; major subjects are still required to test on assigned days.
- Full period assessments require FIVE SCHOOL DAYS advance notification.
- Quizzes may be administered ONLY on a department’s test day
- Quizzes may be announced or unannounced
- Quizzes are equal to 15 minutes or less in length
- Quizzes have a lower value/weight than a full period assessment
- “Exit tickets” may be utilized to assess understanding of material presented upon that day and therefore may be given any day to be graded as classwork
- Make-up examinations must be arranged between the student and the teacher. They do not have to be given on the assigned day.
- A student may not be denied the opportunity to make-up an assessment.
- If a grading policy includes "dropping" the lowest assessment grade, you cannot refuse to administer a make-up and consider the zero the lowest grade to be dropped.
- Issues with students exhibiting a pattern of make-up examinations and absences on assessment days will be resolved by the Assistant Principal of Health & Safety in conjunction with the Assistant Principal of the subject area.
