The following spreadsheet provides the “blueprints” for the district common midterms and final exams. Each blueprint represents the standards assessed on each exam. The standards are selected by subject specific teams of teachers and district staff. Multiple standards are often included in one question. In these cases, the primary standard being assessed by the question is listed on the blueprint.
Please note that all standards are taught and assessed throughout the progression of each course. The district developed midterm and final assessments address only a representative selection of the total number of standards that must be learned.
District developed midterms and finals carry no more than a weight of 10% of the final grade for
middle school courses and for high school courses. The vast majority of a student’s grade is determined by their performance in the classroom on teacher designed assignments and assessments.
