Help Needed to Increase SAT and SBAC Scores

Help me give my students computers to access their Khan Academy lessons to strengthen their math skills and scores on the SAT and SBAC state testing.

My Students

The high school students at our military institute come from the inner city. The majority of our students are on free or reduced lunch and we have applied and received grants that feed our students breakfast and a portion of our population dinner. Our students struggle to get the necessary supplies needed to be successful in math class.

Since our students test scores in math are important for the survival of our school we have to find a variety of means to fund those items that are not optional for success.

Our students parents cannot afford the basic supplies and we work very hard to get the students what they need.

My Project

Because standardized testing is computer based, my students need access to computers to be able to get used to the new testing styles and more practice with math online. We will be using programs like Khan Academy to enhance their skills so that they can get better scores on the their SATs, SBAC, and other state exams.

We have found that without access to computers, students struggle with the using them effectively, which then makes test taking more difficult than it should be.

Over the last couple years we have bought a program that will help increase math test scores and this assessment/progress tool needs to be administered using a computer.
