High School Testing

Upcoming High School Testing

ACT Information for CMHS Juniors

February 8--ACT Workshop with Bob Brausch. This is optional.  Students have until February 5 to sign up and/or pay.  If you haven't already done so, sign up on the emailed link and pay in the counseling office.

Students who are attending the workshop should report to school at the usual time and report to his/her first period class for attendance and wait to be called (probably 5 minutes).  If students are off-campus (CCP or career center), report to the office. All students will be called out of class to report to the annex for the workshop. All students need is something to write with and a calculator.  For lunch, students will report to the cafeteria at 10:45 (whether buying or bringing a lunch). At 11:15, students will go back to the annex, and Mr. Brausch will start again at 11:30. He will finish at 2:35, and students will dismiss to buses/cars as usual at the end of the day.

February 12--ACT testing registration; this is mandatory.  State rules require that this registration must be completed prior to the day of testing. ALL juniors (including off-campus CCP and those at the career centers) are to be at CMHS at 7:30.  Those who are at CMHS will report to first period for attendance and will be called out at 7:40.  Those who are off-campus (career centers and CCP) are to report to the cafeteria at 7:35 for attendance.  

The registration will take 60-90 minutes to complete, and students don't need anything but a pencil.  When students have finished the registration, they will head back to class or to their career center/CCP location. If you attend Laurel Oaks and ride the bus, bus transportation will be provided following the registration from CMHS to Laurel.  If students attend WCCC, Scarlet, Live, or Greene, they will be responsible for their own transportation to school after the registration is complete. If a student attends a career center, the school will be notified that he/she at CMHS so that attendance doesn't count against them; they will also be notified if a student is not here when they are supposed to be so that attendance will count against them if they're absent.

February 20--the ACT; this is mandatory for ALL juniors (per state requirements).  Students will report to CMHS by 7:30 and report to their testing location (to be announced--shared with students via email and posted near the office) in the high school.  Students will need a pencil, calculator, and their license/state ID (if they have one).

Once everyone is checked in, testing will begin (between 7:45-8).  The test will be finished by noon. At that time, students can leave for the day (if they have the permission form), or they will go to lunch and then report to study hall for the rest of the day.  If a student would like to have lunch before he/she leaves, they may eat and then leave for the day (again, with the permission form).  

The permission form was mailed home in early December.  If a student needs another copy, they are available from the main office or the guidance office. Students cannot leave CMHS unless this permission form is handed in the day of the ACT. If a students are unsure as to whether they have it, we suggest they get another one from one of the offices.

Any questions about ACT-related information should be directed to Mrs. Potts or Ms. Beres.

End of Course (EOC) Exams
Re-testing for EOC exams will take place on December 3-12.  These tests will be for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who need to retake exams in order to earn more points toward graduation. If your child will be retesting, he/she will be notified in November. 

The EOC exams at the end of the school year will take place April 1-18. 

High School Mid-term/Final Exams
Mid-terms and finals will take place at the high school on December 17-19. The testing schedule is as follows:
December 17--tests for periods 1, 4, and 7
December 18--tests for periods 2 and 5 and make-up exams from December 17
December 19--tests for periods 3 and 6 and make-up exams from December 17 and 18
