Need Hours? Two New Offline Hours Classes Can Help!

Read!

The Testing hours class is a place for students to log their testing hours for all MAP, OGT, EOC, and ACT hours.  Those hours will be immediately added to each student’s weekly total upon completion of each test.  For those students who have already taken the MAP test this year you may enter those hours on the date you took the test under the units labeled MAP Testing Math 1 and MAP Testing Reading 1.  When you click on those units it will look like this:

 

Unit 2

M.A.P. Testing:  Math 1

 

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)
Who: All 9th - 12th Grade Students
When: September 10-14 and 24-28, 2018 AND May 13-17, 2019
What: All 9th - 12th grade GOVS students are required to take the MAP tests in reading and math on two occasions during the school year. These computer-based assessments measure student growth in a subject area over time. The two subjects will be given back-to-back at the start of the school year and again at the end (or upon withdraw/early graduation).

 

Unit 3

M.A.P. Testing:  Reading 1

 

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)
Who: All 9th - 12th Grade Students
When: September 10-14 and 24-28, 2018 AND May 13-17, 2019
What: All 9th - 12th grade GOVS students are required to take the MAP tests in reading and math on two occasions during the school year. These computer-based assessments measure student growth in a subject area over time. The two subjects will be given back-to-back at the start of the school year and again at the end (or upon withdraw/early graduation).

 

The Independent Reading Class is for students to log any hours they spend reading outside of their assigned class curriculum.  Books, Magazines, Newspaper articles, etc. are areas students may claim Independent Reading Hours. Each week of the school year is listed as a Unit in the class.  Simply find the current week and add a log for each time you have read something outside of your class assignments.  You may add multiple logs throughout the week and submit at the end of the week.  Requirements for approval of Independent Reading Hours are as follows:
