TESTING

Why is my unit test review reset?

-Students are required to link notes for every lesson, into Edgenuity. If you don’t do this, teachers typically reset your unit test review. This is done to get you off of an action list our software gives us. 

-When you submit any missing lessons to Edgenuity, retake the unit test review. This will prompt your instructor to review your notes again, and release your unit test if your notes are complete.   

-Please don’t retake the unit test review without submitting all your notes. Rechecking your notes, especially when they are not there, wastes valuable time and your instructors have none to spare.
