    FAQs:

    Can students be exempt from exams?

    Yes, students can be exempt from teacher-made exams ONLY at this time. If a student has an A (90-100) in the class they may be exempt.

    Do students have to come in-person to test?

    Yes, all GCS Final Exams and EOCs are required to be taken in-person

    How much will the exam weigh?

    It VARIES. GCS Final Exams will count as 20% of the final grade, IF it helps the student’s grade. EOCs will count as 20% but we may receive additional guidance.

    GCS Final Exams will be online assessments that will be accessed via Performance Matters (administration guide attached).
