The American School is pleased to announce that students in select print-based courses now have the option of taking their exams online instead of sending in the exams printed in their study guides.
"Offering online exams is a very exciting move forward for our curriculum and for our students who have been asking for this kind of service,” said Curriculum Director Marie Limback.
Online exams are available for Automotive Systems, Planning Your Career, Child Care, Consumer Economics, English 1: Composition and Grammar, Food Study, Keyboarding, Physiology and Health and United States History.
Whether students choose to take their exams online or to send in the exams printed in their study guides, they will be tested on the same material from their textbook and study guide. The online exams, however, will look somewhat different than those in their study guide. Once students decide to take their exams online, they may not change back to sending in paper exams.
Before deciding whether or not to take online exams, students should visit the School’s Online Learning page at http://www.americanschool.org/online-learning. The Online Learning page contains the most up-to-date list of paper-based courses with available online exams, information on how to sign up for online exams, and a document that contains FAQs and technical specifications.
The American School’s transformation from a strictly correspondence school to one that offers both paper-based and online courses began with the introduction of seven online courses—Calculus, Earth Science, Economics, English 4, Geography, Geometry and Pre-Algebra. Those seven courses recently have seen an increase in enrollments, and the School expects interest in online exams in paper-based courses to be high as well. In its history, the School has helped more than three million students in all 50 states and many countries around the world earn their accredited high school diplomas.
Later this year, the School expects to add more online courses and exams to supplement its existing online offerings. A new group of print-based courses offering online exams will be available next month. Students are invited to visit http://www.americanschool.org often to receive the latest updates.
“I'm excited to imagine what the School will look like in another year!" Limback said.
