Midterms in school are academic assessments administered to students approximately halfway through an academic term or semester. Midterm exams are used to evaluate students' understanding of course material and gauge their progress before the end of the term.
Midterms are typically more comprehensive than regular quizzes and may cover a significant portion of the course content. They serve as checkpoints for both students and instructors to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses, allowing for timely intervention and academic support if needed.
In addition to midterms in traditional courses, virtual learning environments may also include virtual midterms conducted online to assess students' knowledge remotely.
