It’s that time of year again for midterm exams. Every student took midterms on March 13 and 14, in all four blocks.

“I am very nervous when I take my exams, I feel less nervous when I took the group exam because I felt less pressured when I was taking it. I was able to talk to my partner and make sure we were doing the work right,” freshman Noah Chappell said.

Some teachers do the traditional midterm test with the material that the students should know. Then there are other teachers who like to do hands on mid-terms. Mr. Cunningham and Ms. Caldwell have their classes working together in groups for their exams.

“I normally have my students do a project for their midterms so it can only help their grade and not bring it down. There are based on what they have learned in my class. They will be graded on the material, how much work is put into it, and how well they present it. I like to change it up and not do the same old boring stuff all the time,” Mr. Cunningmam said.

Several teachers take time to make their exams for the students to take. Some exams are based on prior knowledge, others are based on what they are learning in the moment, and some use a pretest for something they haven’t learned yet.

“Group exams should become more popular in the school in my opinion because I feel like I am setting my students up for success with group exams,” Mr. Cunningham said.
