Final exams, projects, and papers in US

During exam week: if students have a seated exam or are required to be present for an assessment, they should check in by 8:45 a.m. We will ring the bell at 8:45 a.m. in the Commons to give directions about the exam that day. Students are free to come and go that week, outside of required assessment times. They are asked to spend most of their time in the Tandy when exams are going on in the US building. If a student would like to meet with a teacher, they should be sure to set that up in advance, as teachers have some required meetings and such throughout the week. Students must be in uniform during exams. Remember: the temperatures vary in the buildings, so students are advised to bring layers. It is a good idea to bring a water bottle, calculator (for math/science exams), extra batteries, and extra writing utensils.Exam week plans: Every final assessment is due on the day of the final exam this year, with the sole exception of presentations. If a presentation factors in to the final 20% assessment, those may be done prior to exam week. If students have a written portion of the presentation that they must submit, they should submit those before dead days. If they need to do the actual presentations on dead days, that is fine!Dead Days (no new material and no graded assignments other than presentations that factor into the final exam score): Thursday, December 9, and Friday, December 10. Friday will be a late start schedule (mod 1 starts at 9:10 a.m.) in order to have our Holiday party in the Commons.Students who are doubled up in a subject: you will take the second exam at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. on a day established by the department chair, taking into account the student's exam schedule.Everyone must sit for 1 hour. Students may leave after that, as they finish, and they must leave the US building and patios to head to the Tandy in order to minimize noise for other testers. All exams start at 9 a.m. and end at 11 a.m. or they start at 1 p.m. and end at 3 p.m.Monday, December 137:45 a.m. - Breakfast for everyone in the Commons9 a.m. - Math Exam; 12 - 12:50 p.m. optional PEP presentation with a visiting speaker in the Lecture Center for extra credit on the examTuesday, December 149 a.m. - Social Studies Exam1 p.m. - Conflict examsWednesday, December 159 a.m. - World Language Exam1 p.m. - Technology / ReligionThursday, December 169 a.m. - Science12-12:50 p.m. - Optional Physics and Honors Physics presentation with a visiting speaker in the Lecture Center for extra credit on the exam1 p.m. - Conflict examsFriday December 179 a.m. - English1 p.m. - Make up exams (if a student has been ill, for example)Locations of exams will be determined in the next few weeks by department chairs and we will publish locations on The Commons on PSL and on the pillars in the Barnard Commons.
