Thursday: Review for writing and reading exit exams

What we did in class, today – Students reviewed for the writing and reading exit exams.

Homework – Students who have not completed all of the Pearson Revel assignments should do so before 10 p.m. today, April 28. After that, there will not be a chance to make up any Pearson Revel assignments. There will be a 10% penalty for late work.

What we will do on Sunday, May 8 Students will sit for the exit writing exam in the computer lab in the library. The exit writing exam will be worth 15% of the course grade. Students will choose to write an argumentative essay about one of two writing prompts. Their essay must contain an introduction, two argument paragraphs, a counter-rebuttal paragraph, and a conclusion. If students discover a mistake with the writing exit exam score, they must conference with me either from 12:30 to 1:20 on Monday, May 9, or from 11:00 to 11:50 on Tuesday, May 10. Otherwise, the mark will stand as recorded in the MyGUST grade book.

What we will do on Tuesday, May 10 – Students will sit for the exit reading exam in the computer lab in the library. The exit reading exam will be worth 15% of the course grade. There will be two reading passages with 16 multiple-choice questions. The test is machine graded, so there is no conference regarding it.
