The team sports curriculum has been changed starting this year. Instead of tests being on paper, they are now on Canvas for students to take before midnight on Thursday. There are pros and cons to this experiment and the change has some differing opinions on the subject.

The are some pros of the online quizzes. They don’t take out any class time to take the quiz. They are shorter than the paper quiz, and provide a good study guide. “This allows us to actually do more physical activity and less sitting around looking at papers.” Senior Zac Salyers said. There are more activities now because of the added class time.

There are cons to this movement as well. The activity can be confusing to some and there is not a teacher to help them through it. It can also be hard to find with all the canvas classes and tabs there are. “I sometimes forget to take the quizzes due to not going on canvas everyday. I will forget when I get home and be stuck with the zero.” Sophomore Aidan Bilbao said. These issues can cost students a good grade in the class.

The online quizzes have the right idea, but there needs to be a better format in place.
