Cyber High Exam Policies
Exam Integrity
An exam is the final assessment for a course unit;
it is not a diagnostic tool.
All exams must be taken under the direct
supervision of an authorized, certificated staff
Before approving a student to take an exam, the
teacher of record should ensure that the student is
well prepared.
Reviewing a student's Quiz Detail report and the
completed activity pages will assist with this
Cyber High Exam Policies
Approving an Exam
 When
a teacher approves a student to take
an exam, the teacher decides how long the
student has to begin the exam.
 If
the student does not start the exam within
the allotted time, the approval will expire and
it will not count as an exam attempt.
 If
the approval expires, the teacher may reapprove the exam for the student.
Cyber High Exam Policies
Exam Retakes:
A student is permitted to retake an exam only if they fail
the first attempt.
There is one exception to this rule; once a course is
passed, no other exams may be retaken.
A course is passed when:
1. All five unit exams are completed.
2. At least four of the five unit exams are passed.
3. The average of the highest score received for each unit
exam is sixty percent (60%) or higher.
At no point will a third attempt be permitted.
Cyber High Exam Policies
Scoring an Exam
 An
exam is scored as soon as a student answers
all fifty questions and clicks the "Finish" button.
 It is not possible to score a partially completed
exam. Exam status messages are sent to both
the student and the approving teacher's
Messages folder.
 A score of 90 - 100% is an "A", 80 - 89.9% is a
"B", 70 - 79.9% is a "C", 60 - 69.9% is a "D", and
a score below 60% is an "F". A score of 60% ("D")
or higher is required to pass an exam.
Cyber High Exam Policies
Taking an Exam: once a student opens an exam, it
counts as an attempt regardless of the outcome.
This means that if a student passes or fails an
exam, quits an exam, or lets an exam expire (not
finished in two weeks), it will count as an attempt.
Please note that if a student's Cyber High session is
disconnected due to a technical issue, the answers
are saved, and the student can log back in to
resume the exam
Cyber High Exam
Completing a Course
A course is passed when all five unit exams are completed, at least four of
the five unit exams are passed, and the average of the highest score
received for each unit exam is sixty percent (60%) or higher.
No additional exams may be taken for a course once it is passed or
once the system determines that the student failed to meet the
passing criteria.
A student's five-credit transcript will be automatically mailed the
following work day after completion.
However, during the summer months, transcripts are held from midJune to early-August and mailed prior to the opening of the new
school year.
Partial transcripts are not sent automatically and may be requested
with-in Cyber High from the Management section.
Official transcripts can only be mailed to the school's registrar.
