Exam Exemption Policy

There are no exam exemptions from any course where 1/2 credit is earned (nine-weeks courses) or from any course that has a state end-of-course test (EOC).  In courses that have state EOC tests:  Algebra I & II, Geometry, English I, II, & III, Biology, U.S. History, the EOC serves as the exam grade.  The state EOC score shall count 20% of the student's grade in the second semester:  Quarters = 40% each (80%), EOC = 20%. If state EOC test results are late reporting, see the policy below.

Exemption status is determined by averaging the quarter grades. Absences of any type other than field trips count against the exam exemption policy. Students are exempt from the exam in an eligible course if they have:

A average (90 or above) in the course and have no more than five absences from the course.
B average (80-89) in the course and have no more than three absences from the course.
C average (70-79 or above) and have no absences from the course.

Juniors and seniors who score a 21 or above on their ACT test are also exempt from exams (other than 1/2 credit semester courses for which there are no exemptions).

Academic Weight

The EOC score shall count 20% of the student's grade in the semester in which the test was administered. 

Exam = 20% of the semester grade
Quarter grades = 80% (Quarter 1 = 40% + Quarter 2 = 40%)

If the state is late reporting EOC test results prior to the scheduled final exams, TN Ready End-Of-Course test results will not be utilized for student final exam grades in the tested EOC courses (Algebra I; Algebra II; Geometry; English I, English II; English III; Biology; U.S. History). For these EOC impacted classes, a final exam in lieu of the missing EOC grade will not be required. The quarter grades will be averaged for the final semester grade. Students may choose to take a teacher-produced final exam during the established final exam schedule in an effort to raise their final grade. If this option is chosen, semester grades will be calculated: quarters (40%) each, final exam (20%).

Additional Notes

Attendance will be documented daily. Exams will not be administered earlier than scheduled without prior administrative approval. Any make-up exams will be administered at the discretion of the teacher. Students may checkout at the conclusion of their last exam period of the day with written parental permission as outlined below:

Check-Out Policy After Final Exams

  • If a student intends to check-out after their final exam of the day, they must have a written note signed by their parent or guardian or a parent may come in personally.
  • Phone calls for permission to check-out will not be permitted unless the parent's voice is positively known to the staff member receiving the call.
  • Written parental notes are required even if a student has a permanent checkout on file with the vice principal.
  • Students will give their written check-out note to the teacher of their last exam of the day upon entering the classroom.
  • Students must sign the student sign-out log when departing.
  • No student is allowed to leave prior to the scheduled exam dismissal time.
