Mid-Way Test and Semester Exam Instructions

  • You must have completed all assignments leading up to the mid-way test before you can be cleared to take it. The same is true for the semester exam.
  • The Mid-Way Test and Semester Exam must be taken under supervision with an approved RCS Online proctor at your school.
  • You (the student) must make an appointment and take the test with an approved proctor. To do this,
    1. Log into your online course.
    2. Find the list of approved test proctors. It is usually located in the Mid-Way Test and Semester Exam section.
    3. Email the proctor you choose or go by the proctor's room/office to schedule an appointment to take the test.
    4. After you make the appointment, contact your online teacher. Give him/her the first and last name of your proctor as well as your test appointment time.
    5. When you have completed all the necessary assignments and made the above arrangements, your online teacher will send the password to the proctor at your school.
    6. At the arranged appointment time, go to the proctor's classroom or office in your school. Log into your RCS Online account. Click on the test. The proctor will type in the password and supervise your test.
  • If you have questions about your test, contact your teacher.
  • The mid-way test counts as 10% of your semester grade. The semester exam counts 25% of your semester grade.
  • Remember, it is your responsibility as the student to make these arrangements.
