I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher. I teach four sections of 9th through 12th grade Biology. Biology is the one required science class that every student must take in my state. Biology is also the only science course that has an End of Instruction (EOI) test. Students in my state have to pass 4 of 7 EOI tests to receive their high school diploma. The success on the EOI test is very important to the academic success of my students. My school is in a rural, low-income community. Only a third of our students have enough academic success to attend college. Creating academic success in Biology can help influence the academic path toward college for the students in my classroom.

The State Department of Education revised the End of Instruction (EOI) test Calculator Policy on August 27, 2009. Calculators can now be used on the Biology EOI test but my Biology students do not have calculators. I asked my students to purchase their own calculator but in my rural, low-income community very few have been purchased. I have a second need. We use remote voting devices that work with the Smartboard in my room to prepare for the above-mentioned EOI test. They are running out of batteries.

Every single student in my classroom needs to have a calculator in their hand when they take their End of Instruction test. This will give them every advantage available to them to ensure test success. Using these same calculators throughout the school year will familiarize the students with the calculators and also increase performance in the Biology class as well. On my second need... Purchasing replacement batteries will enable my students to continue to take practice EOI tests on the Smartboard which gives us instant reflection on how well they understand the concepts in each question.

Your purchase can influence student academic success for my class on the EOI test. Your purchase can also influence the academic success for years to come in the lives of my students. Only students who obtain academic success in high school have the desire to continue their academic career in college.
