I have two suggestions:
SUGGESTION 1:As you teach each section of the course, develop 5 or so multiple choice questions from the powerpoints and the key terms given, then give them as quizzes throughout the year. This is a pain the first year, but makes every year after that much easier. This is what I do, and every year I add a few to my bank of questions. I then choose 50-75 questions from this bank at the end of the year, and call this my final exam. Again, due to disitrict policy, I cannot share.
SUGGESTION 2:2. Check the content map on the Assessment course of the PLTW LMS. this will tell you approximately how many questions there are on the final exam from each unit. This will help tremendously when your students study for the final exam. I put a picture of the one for CIM below from 2017. For the latest greatest version check the PLTW Assessment LMS often.
