The ACT test is a test based on the materials you learn in high school. This test measures whether you are academically ready for college or not. It covers the things students should have already learned in high school to guide them through college. The ACT is a normal test like the other tests, it covers the basic reading, writing, and mathematics. Then we have the SAT, which is a test like the ACT, that tells you whether you are college ready or not.
After the inclusion of parents within the small groups, I would then again measure the students possible selves perspective and future vision to see if there were any significant changes since the small group meetings of students only. I would seek to use a different but similar questionnaire to avoid testing bias among the students. I would also distribute a questionnaire to parents after the program has concluded to see if they have noticed any changes in their child’s activities as it pertains to the future and possible selves, to be collected a few weeks after the program has ended. After using administrators to blindly collect and organize the data from all of the program components and from the control group, I would then hire an evaluator to analyze the data for the results, benchmarks, common themes among participants and overall comparison of the data from treatment and control groups as well as the developed logic model to get an understanding of the program
Well, one major problem I believe that should be address is standardized testing. I remember when I was in high school all we heard about until middle of junior year was the HASP. A standardized at decided if you would get your qualify to earn your diploma or not. Therefore, the first three year of high school was focus around this one test and that is not an exaggeration. The year of the test, we had to take our normal Math and English class while an addition HASP prep Math and English so half of my classes where bases around this one test.
These 10th graders have a limited science background, having only taken AP Environmental Science before entering my class. They are brilliant, though, and some of the most motivated students I have ever taught. While the College Board dictates that the AP Chemistry exam is identical for all my students, it is impossible to teach these students as I do the upperclassmen in the other class. I must find materials for use with these students that support their learning while also allowing them to gain the experience needed with the topic under study. I must create learning activities that enable them to remember these topics nearly an entire school year before the AP exam in May.
What is the OAT? The Optometry Admission Test (OAT) is a standardized examination designed to test of what you know and it makes you comprehend scientific information. You must at least complete at least one year of college education, including courses in biology, general and organic chemistry, and physics. The test is mainly of surveys of Biology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry, Reading Comprehension, and Physics. The OAT is sponsored by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO) for students that are seeking admission to an optometry program.
Therefore, my sample will consist of 1,987 students. First, each person will be asked to complete a survey asking both qualitative and quantitative questions about race and academic performance. After primarily disclosing race and age, the participants will first be asked to rank their level of identification with their race/influence of heritage on a 1-10 scale, with one being “not influenced” and ten being “very influenced”. While all students would answer this question, this research would specifically focus on the answers of Asian American students for this portion. The next question would ask the participant’s opinion of different races in relationship to academia.
A study conducted by Skryabina, Taylor, and Stallard (2016) studied anxiety prevention on children’s academic performance. Selected students were put in FRIENDS therapy to help reduce anxiety associated with academics. All students were tested on their reading, writing, and math skills 12 months after their condition therapy or no therapy depending on the condition. This research was done through a randomized controlled trial with 1.448 eligible children, and 1,362 consenting students that took part in the main study. The children selected for the survey were from 40 different primary schools in
In this extended case study, I am going to focus on Greenstown High School and the (Racist) Terms of Endearment. This is a diverse high school and the class in focus is a mathematics classroom taught by a first year teacher. In the classroom, there is an emphasis on equality and diversity. At the start of the year, several techniques were enacted to help students understand racial equity and show a commitment to this in the classroom. One day Anthony, a white student, used the n-word towards Reggie, an African-American student.
The Honors classes prepared me for the Advanced Placement classes that were offered. My junior year I took on the challenge by taking Language and Composition then also taking United States History. That gave me the confidence to double my load with adding on 2 more AP classes to my schedule which is a challenge but I think there’s much worse than four AP classes. As you go you learn that if you set your mind on doing a certain thing anything is possible to overcome.
In a study, Freeburne asked public school teachers and college professors in 19 states to rank keyboard skills (Lowder, 1983). The choices were accompanying, improvising accompaniments, keyboard harmony, sight reading, and transposition (Lowder, 1983). Overall, the teachers ranked sight reading as most important (Lowder, 1983). Although this study surveyed specifically about keyboard skills, sight reading is something all musicians have to do. Even in middle schools, students must sight read in their Large Group Performance Evaluation.
