Many students and parents are unable to understand the difference between final exams and regents in high school. Too, they find it hard to understand how the testings figure into the grade equations for the quarter, or the overall grading of the year. Would you be so kind as to spell that out here in this forum? Thank you!

A.  This school year high school faculty members will be spending much time looking to become more consistent when calculating grades using final and regents exams.  While each course may be different, about 10-20% of a student’s grade is made up of the final or Regents exam.
