Parent Rights: PARENT’S RIGHT TO SEE FINAL EXAM

Dale:  Do our children (and parents) have the right to look at any final examination taken by our children? Unfortunately, a teacher refuses to allow anyone to see the graded final with the response they use the same examination each school year. Is there a law that allows students/parents to see final examinations, especially when all other examinations, quizzes, etc. are returned to students. I appreciate anyone’s assistance with this question.

In California yes! Parents or anyone can inspect any item used in class including assessments. They don’t have to let you view the answer key but most certainly must let you see the questions. They’re covered under our public records act as well as education code.

I think this would fall under FERPA, family education rights and privacy act. They don’t have to give you a copy of the exam, but they have to make an appointment for you to examine the exam in a district office (of their choice, I suppose). I would double-check this with your parent center, though.
