This week we are sharing stories from Ohio teachers who use Edcite for AIR-alignment. Read our Q & A below to learn how a biology teacher in Bellefontaine, Ohio has been using Edcite.
What is your name?
What is your job title? Where do you work?
HS Biology teacher, Benjamin-Logan High School
How long have you been using Edcite?
Edcite had only [been around] for a year, and I heard about it at a professional development meeting for the upcoming biology AIR® test. I started creating questions and tests that summer to use in my class so that my students would be prepared for the Biology End-of-Course Exam given by Ohio. I am going on four years using Edcite, and I love it.
What problem does Edcite solve for you?
Edcite allows me to quickly see what questions students are having trouble with. I can then check whether it was how I wrote my question or whether it was their knowledge. I also use Edcite for pre-tests to get pre and post data.
What else would you like to share?
Edcite has allowed me to reach my goals for students scoring higher on end-of-course exams without “teaching to the test.”
