I'm just tired of fighting it (whatever the new "it" might be) this year so I let them use notes and calculators in person. I figure why penalize them for coming.

Since class rank plays such an important role for University admissions, I think you'd be giving at home students a very unfair advantage. I felt the same as you at first, but someone suggested I look hard at the demographic differences in the groups. The vast majority of the kids that are now in person at my school are "at risk" and don't need me adding to their disadvantage.

Thank you for that thought. I am at private school that doesn’t have some of the issues out local public schools have. I appreciate the point about the class rank and had not gotten there myself yet.

Reconsider what you are giving as an assessment if you want to see what the students actually learned during this pandemic year. 2 essay type real world questions versus 50+ multiple choice questions. Have parts. Then have alternate numbers for online students so it’s not the exact same question. Example: Question 1: Geometry- theories with parallel lines and a transversal. They must draw the image with the correct angles and prove 3 of the theorems using their image. Listing the theorems as their only reference. Question 2: Geometry- similar angle congruencies. They draw the image but use their model to prove why it’s HL not ASS.

Those at home are teaching themselves so anything they are using are notes that they took for themselves. If you are face to face, you are being taught by a teacher so you we are trying to make this as close to normal as possible.

I have to disagree. Those at home aren't teaching themselves if the show up for the live sessions as scheduled for them. They're only teaching themselves if they make that choice.
