S.C.H.O.O.L.S. takes students from TEST AVOIDERS to TEST ATTACKERS

 

S.C.H.O.O.L.S. is a proactive, preventative program dedicated to improving the quality of life for youth.  Our goal is to prepare students for standardized tests, provide achievement building activities and infuse elements of character into K-12 and collegiate curriculum frameworks. As cohesiveness is key, S.C.H.O.O.L.S. is a united front working together to occasion positive outcomes.  As a Supplemental Education Service (SES) provider, S.C.H.O.O.L.S. offers standardized test preparation, academic enrichment, family life coaching and family life stability maintenance services.

 

For standardized test takers:

 

Using Language Arts, Math and Science assessment tools, typically the previous 9 weeks Grade Level standardized End-Of-Quarter (EQT) test or course assessment, students are taught strategies to move from Test-Avoiders (T-AV) to Test-Attackers (T- AT).  Test-Avoiders are operationally defined as students who do not actively engage in the first 5 problems of a given standardized test within the first 10 minutes of the testing period.  Test-Attackers are operationally defined as students who do actively engage in the first 5 problems of a given standardized test within the first 10 minutes of the testing period.  Students are encouraged to move across the Test-Taker Continuum (TTC) to evolve from Test-Avoiders to Test-Attackers.
