7620 – Examinations


The learning value of well designed, teacher-developed examinations is recognized.  Examinations may be used as a component of evaluation of stu­dent achievement when they are conducted in such a way that they effective­ly evaluate the achievement of the goals and objectives upon which instruc­tion has been based.  Therefore, teachers are encouraged to use those means of measurements or appraisal which directly relate to the goals of the school district and the objectives of particular courses.  This measurement is encouraged to be made at the most appropriate steps in the learning process to reinforce and evaluate instruction.  Well designed teacher-made examinations also serve as a focal point for appropriate remedial teaching, as well as demonstrating to the student the success in application of skills and mastery of content.
