Samsung Series 3 Chromebook Needed For Online Reading Test

My Students

Every day my students eagerly read books and have discussions about their reading. In addition to this, upon completing a book, they take a online reading test that not only measures their reading, and vocabulary but also their comprehension. Mostly everyday, students need to take these tests.

My students are a happy group of third graders who love to read and look forward to it.

They come from all backgrounds and socioeconomic levels. Some students have access to computers, laptops, printers, etc. However, others use the computer in the computer lab, or have to access a computer outside of school.

My Project

As students complete their books they must complete a online reading and comprehension test. This test is crucial in helping not only the student but myself understand how they are doing in reading. Having this knowledge I am better able to help them in areas of need. Currently we have one computer and one Chromebook that someone graciously donated to our classroom. These are being put to good use as students utilize them when taking a test. As there are quite a few children in class, we must form a waiting list to use the notebook and computer. Having another notebook will quicken the pace and more students will be able to take the test without waiting too much.

Having another notebook in class will help my students to take the reading test faster as they complete a book.

At the moment, they must wait for their turn. And during the waiting time, their comprehension of the story may have been lost. Therefore having the computer will not only help students but aide me in helping students at a faster rate.
