Are you giving a Final Exam?


#1

My school insists all teachers give a “Final” - a test, not a project grade. Is anyone else giving a final exam in CS Discoveries? I’m mulling over trying to create a debugging exercise or short coding challenge.

Can you have them make something and then answer questions about it for the final? I am giving the students a set of instructions to make an animation using sprites and the draw loop and then they have to add it to a web page and answer some questions. It is all done using the code.org website in the projects section. The test portion could come as in answering questions about what they made.

I am required to give a final exam in my high school CSD class. However, being this is a broad brush class covering many topics (which I like), I know it has been forever since we have visited a lot of topics. Like HTML. So I am thinking of creating more of a terms/vocab type of final that I would I would want my students to know from having taken this class.
