Move Small World Unit Assessment to Thursday?

Grades are now due Friday. Because of this, I am willing to move our Unit Assessment to Thursday. Is that okay? How do you feel about moving the date of the assessment?

Leave a comment to voice your opinion regarding moving the assessment from Wed to Thursday.

I will use the comments to make my decision -- contact your classmates and tell them to leave a comment.

THANK YOU FOR MOVING THE TEST!

I would feel better if the assessment is due Thursday. Since I am assuming the portfolio is still due tomorrow I think it would be better to move the test to Thursday so we can all finish our portfolios today and worry about studying tomorrow.

I think the assessment should be moved thursday because many are election judges so they won't be able to work on it today. Also some have other projects from other classes due also so I think if you want the classes to do well on the assessment, change it.

I vote move it to thursday because we'll be less stressed and it'll give us more time to study

Would the portfolio still be due tomorrow? If so, we might as well have the test tomorrow. But if you extend both, then it should be Thursday so that 1) you have quality work on our portfolios and 2) we have more time to study and we'll [hopefully] get higher grades.

I think it would be better if you did move it to Thursday. It would give people more time to study. Like for me, I'm working really hard on the portfolio, and I'm concentrating too much on the beginning, which is slope and things we've "mastered" and not the harder material that I'll probably rush to finish tonight. Does this also mean that the portfolio will be due on Thursday? Honestly, I am paying more attention to the 2008 Election as it will most likely have a greater impact on my life, the life of Pre-Cal students and yourself these next four years. I want to know how it happens and not ignore because I'm really busy trying to finish up my portfolio. I don't mean to be rude or anything. Honesty.

Tonight's election is a historic event. I would greatly appreciate moving the exam to Thursday so that I can focus on the election tonight and continue preparing for the exam Wednesday.

so when is the portfolio due???

amina said...

move it to thursday! i feel like i need more time to study. plus i'm sick and might not come to school tomorrow.

Amanda said...

definitely move it to thursday!!!!

I believe the test should be on Thursday because so many people are focusing on this historical event and although passing this class is important, moving the test would relieve alot of stress. It would give us more time to "prefect" our portfolios and have are minds set when it's time to take the test.

You should definitely move the test because a lot of people have been stressing over the portfolio, and haven't been properly studying for the test-myself included. Would the portfolio be due thursday then?

I believe the test should be on thursday since many of us are still trying to finish the portfolio, others are election judges, and most are interested in watching the election coverage. If it would be on Thursday we would get more time to study and we would then get better grades.

I feel like if you told me the Unit Assessment was on Thursday I'd be able to sleep better tonight! It'd definitely be greatly appreciated, especially by those who were election judges and had a long day today.

Tonight is one of the most important night in our lives thus far and when my kids and grandchildren ask me where I was I would prefer not to say doing schoolwork. I vote to move the test and you said we would have the portfolio to use for reference on the test so would that be moved to thursday as well? If so it would be greatly appreciated.

please move it to thursday I have no time to review because I'm working on my portfolio. I really want to do well in this unit assesment.

i think the test should be moved to thursday because i was an election judge today and i was also focused on finishing my portfolio so i didn't have time to study.

Please move the test to Thursday. I'm going to be so tired from watching the election results and I have a lot of other homework. Please move it to thursday. :) PLEASE!!!!!!

I think it would be a good idea to move the portfolio due date and test date to Thursday, It would give us more time to make quality work, more time to study, and it would give you more time to look at our work.

Julie said...

I believe I speak for a lot of us, if not all, when I say that it would be greatly appreciated if you could move the test to Thursday. I believe most of us have been under a large amount of stress this entire week so having more time to study would be beneficial. Though I think a major question that everyone would like answered is whether or not our portfolios would be due Thursday as well. Making them due Thursday, and not tomorrow, would result in quality work and not something that was rushed to be put together.

Michelle Lee said...

wait... never mind... I didn't see that grades were due Friday... well it wouldn't give you more time to grade our work, but it would give us more time to study and give you better work! xD

Dear Mr. Marti,
First of all thanks for considering to move the test to Thursday. We think that it would be a great relief and the best alternative because not only do we have other assesments and projects due tomorrow, besides the fact that we have been up since 4 in the morning working at the Election Polls, but giving us an extra
day would definatly benefit our state of mind and would most likely put us at ease. We also feel the extra day would have a great impact on our score and we would do so much better if we could concentrate on only that instead of other 2893749238 things on our mind.

We don't mean to beg BUT could you PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
PORFAVOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! POR FAVOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

post-pone the portfolio too????


PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

The tired exit pollers,

I think it would be better if you make both the test and the portfolio due on Thursday because we will have more time to study and a better/more organized portfolio.

move it!!!!!!! That would be amazing! Also will the portfolio be moved as well, please I really want to make it great not just decent! At Jones we always speak of going the extra mile and that is what I've been trying to do but I feel that I won't be able to do that on the test and with this portfolio by tommorrow especially with so much excitement tonight. Please think of how awesome it would be to get a pile of great portfolios and then get to show them to the rest of the math department, would that not be awesome?! Yes the elections are distracting us all and you know it will be evident in our portfolios and test, please make the right desicion and hear our pleas!!!!!!! Thank you!

it would be greatly appreciated. i know that i have been really trying hard to finish this portfolio, but due to the time constraints, i dont feel that i put my all into that assignment. i would appreciate it if the assessment as well as the portfolio would be moved to thursday so that i can get some quality studying in and have the best possible portfolio.

Thank you for considering this option though Mr. Marti.

Mr. Marti said...

With a majority -- more like a unanimous decision -- of opinions going to move the test to Thursday, I have decided to move both the assessment and the portfolio to Thursday. Please, don't make me regret this decision tomorrow.

Personally, as an American citizen I am paying more attention to the election of all positions as opposed to the portfolio. The idea behind moving the test to thursday is a fairly good idea to a good majority of people. Here are the reasonings.
1. Election judges did not get peer reviewed, which might have an impact on their grade.
2. Election judges would have to study for the test and finish the portfolio in time.
3. Even for people who were not election judges, the vast majority seems unfinished with their portfolios and need tonight's time to do it.
4. Many people are very stressed out already about their first portfolios, for the people, less stress I think would be better for us.

I think that is a great idea and it is very generous of you. I know many people will not only be working late finishing their portfolio's, but I am sure many students will also be staying up to watch the elections. Having one extra night will allow people to do more focused studying and get some sleep.

you should DEFINITELY move the test to thursday. SOME people are just going to bed now
