End of the Year Testing
The school year is coming to a close, which is weird considering I just started my new school. Along with the ending of the year, comes the testing. Teachers are now rushing to teach the information that their students need in order to pass their final tests.
My school, for example, has something called the EOC. EOCs are test that students must pass in order to pass the class, or at least that is what other students are telling me. I, however, am still a little uncertain what an EOC effects.
Last month, my first test began. Each test for each subject is split into two parts. I had already taken the first part, when the servers had a malfunction and I was unable to take the second part. I was told the second part would be rescheduled. It was definitely reschedule, on a day that I was not at school. Once I found out about the rescheduled test, I was full of panic. I did not know what would happen considering I missed my second test. I told my friend about the incident and he did not help at all, by telling me that I would be screwed over by the testing system. I became terrified and went to my teacher who was in charge of the subject that I missed. She told me not to worry and handed me a certificate which told me another date to take part two. I was relived, until my geometry EOC started.
Somehow, my second part for the geometry EOC was scheduled for the exact date and time as my make up for the other EOC which I missed. I went to the lady in charge of the testing system and asked her what to do. She told me to go to my makeup ECO instead of my geometry part two. I was then informed that my geometry EOC part two would be rescheduled for another date.
This school seems to have an occurring theme here. I just hope that my geometry part two will not be rescheduled during the time that I take my last EOC. So my advice bloggers is to not miss days of school, especially during the end of the year when final tests begin.
