Bison Educational system has created a database of questions that are similar to those on state proficiency tests, allowing teachers and parents to easily help their children and students prepare.
Online PR News – 09-February-2010 – – Since the passage of the federal No Child Left Behind Act in 2002, every state now has specific testing guidelines and standards in core subjects to follow with the law. The No Child Left Behind Act is based on the belief that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in education. The test scores from the state proficiency tests give an indication of how students are performing at a particular school, but how do you know when your students or children are getting enough practice for these tests?
Bison Educational System has set a goal to provide a productive resource tool for educators. This tool allows Bison to facilitate the sharing of resources between the State Departments of Education to school districts across the nation. Bison has been able to devise a database of questions, which match up with each state's specific learning outcomes. Bison has also been able to incorporate elaborate charts, graphs, and pictures that are common on state achievement tests into their database, making this a key resource for teachers and students. This means that it is now easier for teachers and parents to help prepare their kids for state testing.
The question bank is presented in a very user-friendly format that is unprecedented. Teachers and parents can simply make a practice test according to the needs of their students and children. Each practice test can be made by first selecting which state, grade and subject your child is in. The second step entails choosing which questions you want added to the practice test. Lastly, print the sample test once the test has a desired amount of questions. Bison has even made it simple to print tests with a teacher format that includes answers and a student format that showcases only questions.
Bison has made it easier to:
* Provide more meaningful homework assignments
* Create short cycle assessments
* Create quarterly assessments
* Provide a variety of presentations in regard to a single learning outcome
* Construct present levels of performance for Individualized Education Programs
* Create Individualized Education Program goals and objectives
* Create curriculum-based assessments
* Access material for home instruction
* Customize individual student learning outcome needs
* Implement and document interventions
Currently, there is nothing else on the market comparable to what Bison’s finished product will be. Teachers that would like to infuse the use of the complicated visuals with their daily lessons will be able to do so. Simply put, Bison Educational Systems is presenting a tremendous upgrade over anything available at this time.
