Mrs. Erickson from Phoenix AZ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a better chance at stress free testing by using quality headphone and microphones.
My school is located near downtown Phoenix in a socioeconomic deprived area. Our school is 100% free lunch and 90% bilingual.
Every year we test the students qualifying for Ell services using the AZELLA test.
This test has now become computer driven for grades 3 - 8.
The test requires students to use headsets with microphone capabilities. Each year that we begin testing we have issues with the headsets and microphones either not working or have been abused and the wires are broken.
Due to budget cut backs and our district being in receivership new headsets were not purchased this year and won't be budgeted for as we move forward.
Using the chrome books and headsets allows 6 students in a room to test.
This year I was only able to test 12 students the first day due to headset malfunctions to the point of having to close out a test and resume.
Testing is a stressful time for students and teachers and these mishaps only add to the anxiety.
My hope is to add a few headsets to out stock so that when we test we know we have good working hardware.
My students will use the headphones and microphones to complete the speaking session of the AZELLA test.
The students will have the equipment needed to take the test and relieve some of the stress we have had from dealing with inadequate hardware.
This will allow for smooth peaceful testing during the school year for the ELL program at our school.
This year we had too many students have to resume there test due to technological error mostly with the headphones we had on campus.
Helping us get good equipment will mean our students will test with confidence and a positive atmosphere.
