This year at Waldwick High School we have moved away from the traditional Final Exams which covered content from September to June and counted as 1/9 of the final grade. Instead, we are introducing Mid-Year assessments which cover content from September to the beginning of January. Most of the assessments will take place during the week of January 14. In June we will have second half assessments, which will cover content from the end of January to the beginning of June.
The assessments will vary by department: traditional test, written responses, projects, presentations, etc. These assessments will count towards the marking period grade and will replace any end of marking period assessment. There will not be a special schedule for the week of January 14. All classes will meet as normal.
We have created a schedule to spread out the assessments so that students are not overwhelmed.
