The purpose of this study is to evaluate teachers' viewpoints about the changes made in the regulation of passing lesson at schools, which became active in 2013 to 2014 academic year. The pass grade applied depends on this regulation, common exams, shortening of the absenteeism durations, and assigning students with performance tasks according to some variables. The development and application of the measurement tool of the study were performed with the high school teachers working in Düzce. Quantitative research methods were used in the study, and the screening model was applied. The SPSS 20.0 statistical package program was used in analyzing the data. Frequency values, percentages, and average values were used to analyze the data. One-Way Variance Analysis (ANOVA) and the t-test were used for unrelated sampling. The sampling of the study consisted of 323 teachers who were selected randomly from among those who worked at various high schools in Düzce in 2013 to 2014 academic year. The teachers' viewpoints about the regulation of passing a lesson at schools were evaluated with the statement, "I am indefinite"; the viewpoints on the regulation of the right to absenteeism were evaluated with the statement, "I agree"; and the viewpoints on the assigning performance tasks were evaluated with the statement, "I do not agree". At the end of the study, no significant differences were found in the data according to gender, educational status, and classroom population variables. Significant difference was detected between the regulation of passing a lesson at school and assigning performance tasks dimensions in favor of the physical sciences and foreign language fields. The teachers who worked at vocational high schools evaluated the regulation of passing a lesson at school in a more positive manner. The teachers' viewpoints on the regulation of passing a lesson at school were determined to differ significantly for those between 20 and over service years in teachers who were assigned in the group "1 to 5 and 20 and over service years".
