Semester Exam Review

The York County School Division is hosting four parent forums in February to discuss proposed changes to student assessments, specifically midterm and final exams, in high school credit courses.

Over the last year, the division has gathered stakeholder feedback regarding current exam practices. Teacher, student and parent feedback on midterm exams was gathered through an online survey in the spring of 2018. High school teachers have also conducted additional reviews and discussions on both midterm and final exams.

As a result of this extensive review, division and school staff have recommended moving from semester exams to quarterly assessments beginning with the 2019-20 school year. The parent forums are being held to share the new assessment strategy as well as to collect additional feedback for the development of the new assessment plan.
