    • Computers shall never be on the floor.  Screens need to be visible at all times.  Cases must be on them at all times.  During class time you are expected to use your computers for class work, this means no games/music/videos that may distract you, or others, from learning.

  • Spanish Learning Assessment

    LEARNING ASSESSMENT

    This same assessment will be taken three times throughout the year.  Its purpose is to gage how much you know in the beginning, middle, and end.  It is not officially graded, as it is a tool for me to better understand how you are progressing during the year.  Please do your best and take your time on this assessment, otherwise it becomes meaningless.  Remember, if you do your best, I will always be proud of you!!


    *Choose the best answer for each question (format: true/false & multiple choice)

    *It is always best to select an answer rather than leaving it blank.

    *Please, please, please double check all your answers before submitting!!

    *If you have any questions/concerns, please ask me before, during, or after the quiz

    *At the end, press submit all and finish.  If you need more time, we will figure out a time for you to finish.
