End of Year Assessment Activities Begin on May 6th -
May is a busy "assessment" month at BHS. We begin the administration of several important assessment activities on Monday, May 6th. These end of the year tests include:
Advanced Placement (AP): The AP testing will begin on Monday, May 6th and conclude on May 23rd. All students enrolled in AP courses have received information regarding the specific test(s) they will be taking.
End of Course (EOC) Assessments: The state mandated EOC assessments in science and mathematics will begin with the science tests on May 16th and 17th. The math tests will begin on May 20th and conclude with limited make-up tests on May 28th through May 31st. Again, all students impacted by the EOC have been receiving information and preparation materials from their math and science teachers.
Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessments: The MAP assessments impact primarily 9th grade English and Algebra students. These assessments are administered in regular class sessions during late April and early May.
End of Course "Final Examinations/Projects": And finally, we are only six weeks away from students completing final course tests and/or culminating projects for all courses at BHS. Final exams for our Seniors occur during the week of June 3-7. Final exams for all other students occur on June 10-12.
We encourage all students to make time to be well-rested and ready to do their best during these important assessment activities. In addition, we encourage both parents and students to monitor the calendar of activities closely during these last few weeks of the 2012-13 school year to ensure that students are prepared for testing activities and are present at school on the scheduled dates for all assessment activities.
