Understanding Policy IHA: Grading Systems and Weighting for End- of- Course Exams

At the November 2020 Camden County Schools Board of Education meeting, the Board voted to approve changes to Policy IHA: Grading Systems. The policy was updated due to changes by the State Board of Education regarding the number of End- of- Course assessments and proposed changes to the grade weighting of those assessments to be finalized at their December meeting.  

Brief Overview of Changes

  • All state mandated End-of-Course exams will count 10% above the state weighted percentage towards the final course grade.
  • Locally developed final exams will also count 10% above the state weighted percentage in all non-EOC courses.
  • The number of courses requiring EOC exams was reduced from 8 to 4. EOC exams will be administered in the following courses:
  • Algebra: Concepts and Connections
  • Biology
  • U.S. History
  • American Literature and Composition
  • Middle school students enrolled in high school Physical Science are still required to take the Physical Science EOC assessment.
  • Please note that these changes also apply to middle school students enrolled in high school courses.

Free Parking for Perfect ACT/SAT Score

Students will receive free parking anywhere on campus and a $5000 scholarship if they obtain a perfect score on the SAT or ACT.  See Dr. Phillips if you qualify.

Final Exam Exemption - Spring Semester 2024

Comprehensive exams remain in place for Georgia Milestones End of Course assessments (EOC). We will continue to stress the importance of these exams and use the data to plan for instruction. EOC assessments may not be exempt due to state policy.

In order to maintain continuity with our previous procedure that students found as a major incentive and to alleviate the redundancy of excessive testing, the following criteria will allow students to still exempt Final Exams.

This exemption is an acknowledgement of a student’s exemplary academic effort which has led to the student’s college and career readiness. Teachers and Administration make the final decision on exemptions. The classroom teacher will keep records to validate a student’s eligibility for exempting the final exam.

A student will be exempt from a final exam if they meet the following grade and attendance criteria:

                  90-100  (5 absences)

                  80-89   (3 absences)

                  76-79   (1 absence)

                  70-75   (0 absences)

Absences for the Final Exam Exemption include both Unexcused and Excused.  Exam Exemption is separate from the Attendance Policy Revision.

The following  exemption deadlines are in effect for Spring Semester 2024:

Graduating Seniors: May 7, 2024
All Other Students: May 14, 2024

Students who are not eligible by the deadline or who drop below the criteria stated above in the 5 days leading up to the final exam window, will be required to take a Final Exam. Students who become ineligible after the deadline and do not take a Final will be required to make the Exam up or will have a zero entered in as E2.
