Assessment of Progress

State Competency Test

The state requires that you complete a state competency test at the end of each semester of this class.  If you pass with an 80% or higher, you will receive a certificate from the state.  However, scores on this test are not an indication of intelligence.  It is only one of many ways to assess learning.

Course Materials

Recommended Equipment

Most equipment in this class will be provided for you.  I do recommend having a USB drive (AKA “flash drive” or “jump drive”) or SD card of at least 8GB that you can bring to class each day.  An external hard drive or cloud storage (i.e. Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, etc.) would also work.  This is so you can backup any files and projects you  are working on in case of computer failures or other glitches.

Personal Statement and other items (optional)

Equipment check out

You will be able to check out any of the equipment in the class after school and it needs to be checked in the following school morning whether or not you have my class that day. Then you can came and check it out again. Realize we do not have equipment for everyone so it will be a first come first served.

As a class, we may choose to adjust the contents of this document to better support learning at any time.  If we do make adjustments, I will contact parents through email and/or a letter that will detail the changes.
