Uniform Problem

The problem with a uniform exam spread out over a twelve period day (kids take the same exam anytime during the day, depending upon when the periiod they have the subject) is that by the time a kid gets to take the exam he has seen every question on the exam.

I am not the only one that sees a problem with this yet the policy continues term after term.

Yeah, that's crazy. My HS had uniform exams too, BUT they scheduled exams like colleges do, where everyone in the course takes the exam at the same time (in the gym, or in multiple classrooms).

We didn't have regular classes during exams -- we just came for our exams whenever they were scheduled.
