Unit tests will be given two or three times per quarter. Each test will contain material relating to the chemistry units that are covered in class each day. Study guides are provided and reviewed before each test and exam. Several quizzes will also be given each quarter. The format for the tests and quizzes will vary. They may contain any combination of matching, multiple choice, completion (fill-in), or short-answer / open-ended questions. The questions on the assessments will also reflect depth of knowledge in varying degrees. A comprehensive mid-term and final exam are given each semester as well.
Students who are absent on the day that a test is given must take the test as soon as possible after they return to school.
