Achieving Student-Centered Success on the High School Exit Exam: Five Components of an Effective Remediation Program
Forrest, Scott N.
CATESOL Journal, v21 n1 p148-161 2009-2010
High schools spend incredible amounts of time and resources toward preparing students for high school exit exams. A predicament arises when some students continue failing the exam and are in danger of not receiving a high school diploma. This article describes 5 components of an exit exam remediation program through which to equip and empower students who have failed the exit exam at least once to pass the English Language Arts section of an exit exam. An effective remediation program must not only prepare the students for the exam but also ensure the students master the standards of learning expected of high school graduates. Also, the components must be viewed in light of the unique educational and life needs of students who have failed an exit exam at least once. Therefore, the components are standards aligned with student-centered approaches to learning and assessment.
