New Testing Protocol at MHS

Printer-friendly version

Students were informed Wednesday, January 15 of a new testing protocol involving

electronic devices.  The following protocol will be implemented effective immediately:

MHS staff will collect all electronic devices (cell phones, iPods,

etc.) from students prior to distributing tests and will not return

them to students until all tests have been collected.  If a student

does not comply with the request, there will be consequences for

academic misconduct as well as insubordination.  If students are

caught with a second device on their person, the test will be

collected and the student will be escorted to Student Services to see his/her dean.

If students do not want to turn in their phones, they should not bring

them to the classroom.  Students will be responsible for lost or

damaged phones as long as they remain in the classroom during the

testing period.

We understand that collecting cell phones will not eliminate the

cheating problem, but it does mimic the secure testing conditions on

all standardized tests (ACT, PSAT, SAT, AP) as well as the

expectations of most college courses.

If you have any questions about this new preventative measure we will

be holding a Parent Forum on Academic Integrity Wednesday night,

January 22 (7:00 - 8:30 pm) at MHS.
