Disregard the Grade of Confusing Online Test When Calculating Our Average

30 Signatures Goal: 150


Dear SAR HS History Department,
We the people of the SAR Class of 2016 are exercising our First Amendment right to petition any unfair rules, and ask that the grade for the confusing exam recently administered on Haiku on Wednesday, February 5th, at 1pm, be disregarded when our final grades are calculated. The format was very confusing and it put students at a disadvantage in regard to time limit. Also, many students were victims to their computer crashing. Some were unable to submit their work because the test closed at 1:59:59, not the promised 2pm. For this and many more reasons, we ask that you consider nullifying this exam and assess our knowledge on Napoleon and the French Revolution in a different manner.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration,
The SAR High School Class of 2016

Highlights

February 5
Olivia Tulkoff: Along with the fact that it was unclear as to where exactly the questions were, making me start the test five minutes late after finding the questions, I also did not know what documents were being referred to the the second section or chronology part of the test

Leah Shulman: This was the first time ever doing something like this with no practice. It wasn't just about focusing on the test, that happened to be really long, but I also had to concentrate on knowing where to submit it and the whole environment of taking a test outside the classroom was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be

    This test was literally the hardest thing I ever took. IF this test got any harder I would get a negative grade. I mean failing is one thing, but getting a 0 is another. Now give us a retest, or feel my wrath.

    It was extremely challenging to finish such a long test in such a short amount of time. Many kids had trouble getting used to the new system, causing them to waste time that they desperately needed. Without the assistance of a teacher to answer question, the test was especially difficult. This section of the test should be weighted less if counted at all.

    I feel that it was difficult not having the support of the teacher to assist on specific questions.
