Exams End of 9 Weeks Tests


Exams - Nine Weeks Tests and End of Semester Tests

Exams have been replaced by the nine weeks testing and standards of learning (SOL) tests. Therefore, there are nine-weeks tests every nine weeks. In addition there are SOL Tests at the end of every semester. A semester consists of two nine week grading periods. If a student makes 400 or better on the SOL a teacher may exempt the student from the end of the semester nine-weeks test.
