SPRING 2017 ORIGINAL CREDIT FINAL EXAMS

ATTENTION MTDA Students!!

MTDA Spring 2017 Original Credit Semester Finals will be administered May 23-25, 2017. Final exams must be taken on one of these dates, without exception. Thursday, May 25, 2017 is the last day of Spring 2017 semester.  Semester finals should be complete by 5pm on Thursday. The date of final exams cannot be changed.

Please locate your class(es): Exam Proctor Information.  If your course has a YES in the proctored final column, you will need to take your exam in the presence of a local proctor. That person will have the password for your exam and any other important exam instructions.

Arranging for a proctor and time to take your exam is your responsibility.  The exam time arranged by you and your proctor must take place on May 23rd, 24th, or 25th. Your proctor can be a school administrator, counselor, site facilitator, or other school personnel. It may not be a parent or another student. Start this process now, as it is not something you want to leave until the last minute! Make sure you know far ahead of time who your proctor will be and the best date/time to take your exam.

If your course has a NO in the proctored final column, you may still have a semester exam for your course, but a proctor is not required. See your course page and instructor for more information and announcements.

Week 4 of our fall semester begins today!  We are now sending out weekly grade reports to you, your parents and your local school, and all classes are in full swing.  We hope you are feeling engaged and confident in this environment!
If all is going well?  Great!  Carry on, scholar!  Let us know if we can assist you in the coming weeks and months as the semester runs it course.
 
If things are not going well, this is the week to fix it!  Please contact your teacher or the help desk, (support@montanadigitalacademy.org) right away so we can resolve any issue.
