Upper School Finals

In order to provide the opportunity for meaningful assessment at the end of each semester, our final exams mirror our core academic principles, calling upon students to utilize all four levels of Marzano’s taxonomy – Retrieval, Comprehension, Analysis, and Knowledge Utilization.

Exams are structured as follows: 

    1. Finals are cumulative.

    2. Ninety-minute exam times. This timeframe is similar to our block schedule, making it easier for students to prepare for final assessments because they are familiar with testing of this length.

    3. Students will remain in their exam room for the full 90 minutes, at which time they will be dismissed. This change limits distraction during testing. However, upper school students needing additional time to complete their exam may have an additional 30 minutes.

 

 Our goal with all final assessments is that every exam would represent the depth of learning that occurs within our program.
