5/18- The Space test was distributed on Friday, 5/17. Students who said they did not have access to the internet were given paper copies. Students who said they did have internet can find the test in my Google Classroom for their Core class. All students were instructed how to join their Google Classroom and asked to do that prior to the electromagnetic spectrum project. For those who did not join at that time and who have forgotten the code to join their classroom, here are the codes again:
- ulz1d8 for Core 1
- 2kda8l for Core 2
- byzawn for Core 3
- u0p5cj for Core 4
This "take home" test allows students to use their notes, signed out texts, and internet resources. They must complete the test without "human" help...no assistance from parents, siblings, classmates, or other people (other than students who require assistance by having their test read to them).
