BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A Ridgeview High School class has debuted their alternate assignment after Raiders quarterback Derek Carr helped them out of their initial final exam .
Monday morning, the teens took to social media to ask Carr for a shout out in order to receive an easier history final.

Less than 24 hours later, Carr posted a video on social media with the following message:
“Shoutout to the students at Ridgeview High School that wanted me to tweet a shoutout to you; well I’m going to send you a video instead and say that there shouldn’t even be an alternate exam — there should be no exam. God bless you guys and go Raiders!”
Unfortunately, the students couldn't go without a final exam. Instead, history teacher Marc Donez created an exam inspired by the quarterback himself. The students would answer one multiple choice question, then throw a football towards the letter they believed was the correct answer.
Donez also used what happened for a class discussion on the power of social media.
