Wednesday, Health Day

JH/MS students have Health class today.  We will look over and discuss note taking guides on Chapter 7, and hand out study guides for Chapter 7 Test, which will be on Monday.

A Chapter 7 Practice Test is availible online, all you have to do is click on the link.  Students may take the practice test as many times as they want to help them prepare for the actual test.

Personal Fitness will be having a test today over assignments 5-8.  The test will be linked from 

We are trying to do as many online tests as possible this school year, for a few reasons:
1.  Environmentally friendly - the more tests we take online, the less paper we have to use.
2.  Skill building - as someone who is currently taking some online college courses, on line testing is something that students should have some experience with.
3.  Instant Feedback - the second the student clicks "submit" on an online test, their score is sent to them immediately.  There is no more "waiting" for the teacher to correct the tests (and usually ALL the tests) before handing them back to the students.

What does your student think of taking tests online? 
If they had a choice would they prefer online tests or paper tests? 
Do they see the value in learning how to take online tests?
