At my school, the last 3-4 days are exam days. We have an exam from 8:30-10 and one from 10:30-12. Kids are not required to be at school unless they are in an exam, and we keep good security to avoid distracting behavior by kids in halls during exams. Kids may stay and study, but must be in a designated quiet study area. Teachers must keep students in their room till the exam period is over—no releasing them as they finish.

We have a 7 period day, so some years they have 4 exam days (2-2-2-1) and other years they have had 3 days (3-2-2). Kids who miss an exam (excused only) may make it up in the afternoon. Otherwise, teachers can spend the afternoons grading exams, finalizing grades, and getting classrooms ready for end of school.

We are all required to give an exam or “other culminating experience” approved by admin. It must be comprehensive, but we give midterms the same way, so finals only have to cover the second semester.
