Instructional Ideas
  • Set aside the time for a couple of days in the computer lab for learners to try out and ask questions about the online version
  • Pair this with a few short lessons on test-taking strategies
  • Discuss the questions and responses as a class


Classroom Considerations
  • Depending on your printing capabilities, it may prove difficult to print the large-print version of the assessment
  • Some questions in the online version are more interactive than the typical multiple choice question (they might have passages students can drag and drop, etc.)
  • After completing the online version, pupils can see their scores for the easily graded questions and share them with a teacher; these show up as scores, but do not show the answers
  • Both the online and paper versions come with answer keys that show the relationship between each question and specific Common Core standards
  • A rubric is included for the essay questions
  • None
