I have been a teacher at Fremont High School for 5 years. This is my first year as testing coordinator, in which I organize and implement all of the state and federally mandated testing. Our school has always been among the lowest test scores in the state. We are an urban school with a severely underserved student population. With so many students on campus, it's hard to both set up the test administration and get teachers and students mentally prepared. My proposal has several parts, all of which I hope will end with the students and teachers at my school site improving testing conditions and scores. The second part of my proposal is geared toward increasing our students' scores on state and federal mandated tests. This is particularly important now, when students are required to pass these tests in order to earn their high school diploma. In addition, our school's funding is dependent on the standardized test scores. The second part of my proposal, which will be funded through this grant, involves incentives for students to do well on testing. Teachers will be given small prizes, such as pencils and stickers, to pass out to students who are working hard during the test. While it may seem that high school students are too old for such things, the exact opposite is true. Many high school teachers still use incentives because they are such an effective motivator. My hope is that students will work hard on the tests, because they know that their hard work will be recognized.
