So, my question is: What does "midterm" mean to you? One of a series of large, significant tests taken over the course of a school term? Or does it ONLY mean a test taken in the middle of the term? If that's the case, what do you call those tests that do not take place in the middle of the term?
I sincerely hope this makes sense. It's 3:50 AM and I have a "midterm" again tomorrow morning at 8:30. Yay for caffeine!
ETA: To clarify, in my lexicon, we have midterms, (1 - 4 tests spread out over the course of the term) and then a final exam at the end of the term. So my "midterm" last week was not a final exam.
