Since we have semester test opt outs, I never have very many kids in my room
during finals. We are, however, required to give an exam of some sort for
those students who do have to take finals. I have always had my students
compose a written critique over their last project as well as one over a
famous artwork. I feel that I can tell by reading these whether a student
has required the necessary knowledge throughout the semester through their
vocabulary and thoughts. I give them a "test" paper with all the
requirements of the critique.
