To help teachers assess their student's growth throughout the school year, CodeHS curriculum features several types of quizzes.

Summative Assessment Types

  • Unit Quiz - quiz at the end of modules to assess overall understanding of the lessons
  • Midterm - administered near the middle of the course to assess student progress and growth; useful to highlight student strengths and gaps before advancing to more challenging modules
  • Final - summative quiz at the end of the course to synthesize learning of entire course content
  • AP Practice - available in AP courses to help students prepare for the AP exam, these quizzes are meant to simulate the format of the AP exam
