CLEVELAND - At New Tech @ East Tech High School in Cleveland, the students here have a one-to-one computer to student ratio.
It's not your traditional classroom. Here, they use a computer-based instruction and testing method called Study Island, which is a strategy the school uses to help 10th graders prepare for the Ohio Graduation Test.
Study Island is a web-based program that focuses on all parts of the OGT in all content areas.
Students can work at their own pace and ask individual questions to teachers and get tutorials if they miss the answer to a question.
When they pass a test, they earn a ribbon that is then displayed in the hallway for the entire school to see.
It's become somwhat of a competition as all of the students are striving to have the most ribbons, which are also awarded for attendance.
Study Island helps students stay on track and gain confidence when taking the real OGT.
