The Best Headset Choices for WIDA Testing

In the past years, states across the nation have begun implementing the WIDA assessment program. WIDA develops proficiency standards and assessments for English-language learners throughout the country and has also developed the same for Spanish-language learners. Since its beginning in Wisconsin, Delaware, and Arkansas, WIDA is now used by school districts in 37 states. With WIDA, schools determine a student’s level of English when entering a school and can then place them in the correct language learning class level.

WIDA includes both listening and speaking exercises and gives recommendations for what sort of headsets will work best with the test. WIDA suggests using over-ear headphone-style headsets with microphones and stereo sound, instead of earbud-style. Lighter styles with smaller earpieces work well for younger students, while heavy-duty earpieces that sit over the entire ear are good for noise reduction and help students focus on their test exercises. Boom microphones work much better than inline microphones since they capture sound better than inline mics, which sit farther from students’ mouths. Fabric-covered cords will prevent tangling and are much more durable than rubber-covered styles. Finally, WIDA recommends having inline volume control. Since the volume cannot be adjusted once the testing software is in use, the inline volume control allows students to set the headphone volume to a comfortable level before the test begins.

While WIDA does not require any specific brand of the headset, they do have a few that they recommend. Here are three of the most popular styles among our customers for use in their WIDA testing:

  1. Hamilton Buhl Trios: The Trios headset comes equipped with both dual plugs and the TRRS plug, so it is convertible between different devices like desktops, laptops, and tablets. This makes them a great investment for school computer labs: Hamilton’s products are well-built, reliable, and can be used for a variety of applications outside of standardized testing. The Trios has a large, over-ear headphone design to help block outside noise and keep students on task.
  • AVID Education SMB-25VC: These headsets are another large over-ear design, and are heavily padded for maximum comfort. The large boom microphone can swivel up out of the way and is also adjustable to sit closer or farther from the student’s mouth so each student can achieve the perfect fit. These come with a dual plug, making them a good choice for testing environments utilizing desktop computers.
  • AVID Education AE-36: The AE-36 is possibly the most popular headset that our customers use for WIDA testing. They can be used with any laptop or desktop, and are a great choice for Chromebooks. The AE-36 comes with a 6-foot cord, which ensures that students won’t accidentally pull the cord out, even if the audio jack is in the back of the device. The padded headband and earpieces on this design keep the headphones comfortable for long-term use.

While headsets with microphones are needed for WIDA testing, purchasing a large set for school-wide testing isn’t always feasible and can be cost prohibitive. Since WIDA only recommends having three to five students working on the speaking portion of the test at a time, an affordable solution is to purchase a smaller set of headsets and combine these with headphones that can be used for the listening portion of the test. A very popular style of headphone for WIDA is the AVID Education AE-35. Similar in style to the AE-36, the AE-35 is a lightweight style with an adjustable headband that fits most students’ heads. A comfortable style for long-term use, the AE-35 is a good choice for both computer and language labs as well as classroom and school-wide headphone sets. With bulk pricing available, these headphones are not only a reliable choice for schools but are also affordable.

WIDA testing has become an important tool for school districts, and having the right equipment puts students in the best position to succeed. As schools begin to plan for the next academic year and look for headset solutions, keep these WIDA recommendations in mind!

Over-ear headphones – what you need to know!

How do I choose between “over-ear “headphones versus “on ear” or simple earbuds?

Over-ear headphones create an enriched, personal hearing environment. These are ideal for educational settings as they provide high quality sound with the durable designs for day-in-day-out use.

Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamiltonbuhl, Califone , Cyber Acoustics , ThinkWrite , Andrea Communications and AVID Education.

The headphone earcups provide ambient noise-reducing qualities to allow the user to focus on the audio rather than external sounds.

On-ear headphones allow you to hear external sounds.

Whether you need stereo, mono or dual stereo/mono headphones with or without volume control, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your facility’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget.

Most headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.

As a quick rule of thumb, monaural headphones are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.

Stereo headphones are ideal for educational gaming, online learning, music appreciation classes and 21st century learning using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

It is important to know if the audio source is a mono or stereo player as well, since plugging a stereo headphone into a mono source will result in sound only coming from one of the two earcups.

ON EAR HEADPHONES

Using on-ear school headphones is an economical solution for schools and educational centers to meet the demands of 21st-century education, technology, and testing requirements. The ear cushions rest on the outer ear, making the headphone light, comfortable and less prone to overheating the ears. The on-ear headphone style also allows the wearer the benefit from hearing the outside environment.
Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone, AVID Education and our own designs. Whether you need disposable, multi-use with replaceable parts or easy to clean and disinfect on-ear headphones, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your school’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget. Many early learning headphones, pre-school headphones, and early education headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.

 

 

OVER-EAR HEADPHONES

Our over-ear headphones create an enriched, personal hearing environment. These are ideal for educational settings as they provide high-quality sound with the durable designs for day-in-day-out use. Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone and AVID Education. The school headphone earcups provide ambient noise-reducing qualities to allow the user to focus on the audio rather than external sounds. Whether you need stereo, mono or dual stereo/mono headphones with or without volume control, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your facility’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget. Most headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.
As a quick rule of thumb, monaural headphones are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.
Stereo headphones are ideal for educational gaming, online learning, music appreciation classes and 21st-century learning using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
It is important to know if the audio source is a mono or stereo player as well since plugging a stereo headphone into a mono source will result in sound only coming from one of the two earcups. These are great for early learning, pre-school, and educational settings.

 

HEADSETS WITH MICROPHONES

Encore helps you keep it simple or go high tech when your school is in need of headsets with microphones. Consider our many selections of early learning headphones and educational headsets. Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from the best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone, Cyber Acoustics and AVID Education.
Simple and economical earbuds or on-ear headsets with a boom or an inline mic can help your school engage in English Language Arts, language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and other individualized instructional activities.
Schools with larger learning centers and bigger budgets may want to consider higher end headsets with mono/stereo, volume control or noise control options to provide the optimum individual learning environment from early learning through High School.
If your school is planning ahead for future PARCC and Common Core testing, legislation will begin requiring headphones with microphones for speaking and listening testing.

 

CLASSROOM EARBUDS
Should I buy classroom or disposable earbuds?
Classroom Ear Buds are sturdier and designed for long term usage.
Bulk Disposable Earbuds are priced LOW and still often last as long as the classroom versions, just without a warranty.  Great for testing, short-term use or giveaways.

WIRELESS HEADPHONES

Wireless headphones provide flexibility for those who do a lot of personal listening. No wires to tangle you up allows for greater mobility to listen, learn, play or work.
Encore’s selected systems are compatible for SMART/HDTV, DVD, Blu-Ray, gaming systems, computers, tablets, TV, mobile phones and music devices. Our wireless headphones are ideal for language learning, literacy groups, ELL / ELD applications, audiobook listening, and testing centers. Our brand options allow from 100′ to 300’ reception range from the digital wireless transmitter.
Choose from Califone’s color-coded transmission headphones or Hamilton’s multi-channel Bluetooth transmitter headphones; both allow up to four different color-coded channels of simultaneous audio listening. Headphones are sold separately or in systems of four.

MULTIPACKS

How to Choose Gaming Headsets for Minecraft’s Education Edition

With the full version of Minecraft: Education Edition due for release in early November, classroom gaming headsets are in high demand. How do you decide which gaming headset to purchase? Fortunately, there some great “convertible” options designed for classroom use when gaming programs are being utilized and even when they’re not.

Gaming Headset Options

Why are gaming headsets more costly? Most gaming headsets include detachable inline gaming controls, premium surround sound, separate game and audio chat, and cushioned ear cups that diminish external distractions. USB plugs are standard for gaming headsets and increase the price per unit for inclusion of the complex USB wiring technology. Some headsets offer multiple plugs for connection to a wider range of PC’s, laptops, tablets and devices.

The AVID Education CD-858MF even offers vibration, flashing lights and enhanced sound for an immersive 3D experience. Califone offers both a deluxe (Califone GH507) and lighter weight (Califone GH131) edition of their gaming headsets. There’s even a gaming headset specifically designed for collaborative gaming on XBox One and XBox 360 called GameRush by HamiltonBuhl. All can be used for educational gaming and regular classroom use (e.g., language learning software, listening labs, video editing and testing).

New Minecraft Features

Utilizing gaming headsets that are specifically designed for classroom use will maximize the options and features offered in the new Minecraft: Education Edition. Some of these new features include:

  • Classroom Mode will allow educators to manage world settings, communicate with students, give items to students and teleport them in the Minecraft world. It displays a map view of the Minecraft world, a list of all the students in the world, a set of world management settings and a chat window. There is even a Minecraft clock to show time of day in the world. Classroom Mode offers educators the ability to interact with students and manage settings from a central user interface.
  • The Education Edition will also include leads and horses, additional player skins, pistons and the remainder of Redstone functionality, plus an updated user interface.

Lesson plans, starter worlds and tutorials are accessible at education.minecraft.net, as is the Minecraft Mentors program, a community for educators who use Minecraft.

If your school site or classroom is considering adopting the new Minecraft: Education Edition for game-based learning, make sure to research gaming headset options that are designed for classroom use, maximize your investment, and offer multi-purpose utilization.
