Semester Tests?

Melanie Peck

This year, Chaffin will not be giving semester tests. Students may still have tests in their classes, but they will not be semester tests. 

Many students have opinions about what they think should happen. Some think that they are needed and that we should still have them. Others say that tests are the last chance to bring up their grades, and they should have a choice to take them. More say that it is a good thing that we will not be having semester tests because it has been a rough year and no semester tests could help some students out. 

Having semester tests can be stressful for the students and the teachers. It causes students to have more things to worry about, and it has them worried about what grade they will get or if they studied enough. This allows students to have more time to finish and turn in their assignments or missing work.
