The practice exam is this Thursday (5/2). Rather than go to 5th period, report directly to the back gym. I will submit a list of students that attended, you will be marked as having a school excused absence, the same as if you were on a field trip. It will initially show as an unexcused absence but will be changed. You should let your parents know so they don't wonder why you were absent from 5th period.
**If you can not make it on Thursday, I am running my AP Euro practice exam after school on Tuesday. It will run from around 2:30-6:00. The format/timing of the exams are exactly the same. The APUSH/EURO exam used to always be on the same day so I used to always run one big practice exam. Now I get to run two. :)
It will take a few minutes to get stuff passed out on Thursday, hopefully we are started by 1:15. We will probably get done around 4:45, but you are welcome to leave when you are done (unlike the real exam).
The multiple choice will count just like the last 55 question M.C. did and I will take your best writing from the DBQ, SAQ and LEQ and convert it to a 50 point essay grade. So there are 105 total points that will come from the practice exam. That may be the only thing that goes into your grade the next two weeks.
Students that miss some or all of the exam will need to take the multiple choice test and write a DBQ next week. There will not be an opportunity to do more than that next week.
Practice exams will be returned on Monday with a 1-5 score. Historically, the majority of my students have received the same score on the real exam that they got on the practice exam. However, there are typically a good amount of students that go +1 and some do go -1. Students that go +2/-2 are extremely rare, I think last year I had one of each.
Hopefully, that answers any questions that might still be out there.
