Subject: Final exams
I currently am teaching Pre-Calculus and Calculus at a small private school. The seniors with who meet a certain attendance requirement and have an "A" can opt out of finals. The board is considering a plan to allow all high school students who meet these standards to opt out of their finals. I am a little concerned that some students will not be adequately prepared for college opting out of so many finals. And I feel the review (especially in math) is good to help them retain what they have learned. I was wondering if there was any research on whether finals are beneficial for the students that I can present to the board before they make a decision?
