#### 2021 Spring Exam Information and Schedule

Dear Students and Parents:

Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding the COVID epidemic, your teachers have determined that scheduling 2 hour exams is not necessarily the best plan at this time. However, there are some situations where the exam is still the best choice.

The LRSD requires a semester exam grade. Teachers have the option in determining how a semester exam grade will be determined. In some cases, your semester exam grade will be the average of the first and second nine weeks’ grades, a project, an essay, etc.

First nine weeks’ grade          92 x 2 = 184

Second nine weeks’ grade    80 x 2 = 160

Semester exam grade            94      =   94

Total   = 438

438 divided by 5 = 88%/B– First semester grade on your transcript

Example # 2:

Assuming that in some cases you did not have a semester exam, project, essay etc., your teacher will be averaging the first and second nine weeks’ grades for your semester EXAM grade.

To calculate your semester exam grade using the same numbers as above is as follows:

92 + 80 = 172 divided by 2 = 86% (semester exam grade)
