eTAP SCHOOL TESTED.  
 

"The most daunting hurdle for high school students is the CAHSEE( CA Highschool Exit Exam). This is particularly true in a continuation high school. As the math and science teacher at Del Rey Continuation School in West Los Angeles I have found that the eTAP program is invaluable. The students can operate eTAP with a minimum of instruction and supervision. The eTAP program is thorough and quick with feedback. With this program I have increased my CAHSEE success rate from 15% first time pass to 35% first time pass”.
Bill Pray, Del Rey Continuation High School, Los Angeles

    The whole brain system is different. Boys tend to be more kinesthetic, more hands-on, more spatial-mechanical and they don't think in words as much.
    Teachers also should introduce more movies, videos, or other forms of multi-media in the classroom. Change reading requirements: Allow more choices. Take notes and write papers using laptop computers.

  9. How Can Teachers Develop Students' Motivation -- and Success?
    The same tests might not be so harmful if they were simply seen by educators and students as assessing students' skills at that point in time and as indicating what skills students need to work on in the future. In this case, the tests needn't dampen students' excitement about learning.
