Exhibitions and Rubrics

Exhibition Rubrics

Exhibition rubrics are the foundation of School of the Future and what we use in place of High School State exams.

SOF high school students are exempt from most Regents Exams as the school is a member of the Consortium and has a waiver from the state that allows SOF students to show mastery in a core subject by completing an exhibition. Exhibitions are thesis papers that are roughly ten to twenty pages in length in English, science, math, and history. Students choose the subject they will complete and finish it by the end of a semester in eleventh and twelfth grade. The final paper and an oral defense presentation are graded by a committee of student peers and teachers and the combined score is the student’s state test score in that subject area. Students also must take the ELA Regents exam.
