  • Check Your Work

    Hi Kids, As you wind down in the writing and polishing of your senior paper, pls review it carefully against the YES TEST. The YES TEST is the assessment instrument I will use to grade your paper. Also, below is a link to a review sheet... go through it before the yes test and be sure you have hit these major points of concern. Good Luck...
