Administering a Math Measure

Administering a math measure is the same as if the student were taking a regular classroom test. There is no training, videos, or special instructions needed for administering it. The test is administered online, and the student reads each question and selects the best or correct answer.

We do not have a script for administering our tests. Students just begin taking the test as if they are completing a hard copy, it’s just read the question and solve/answer the problem. However, if you prefer to give an introduction to the test here is what you might say: “You are going to be taking a math test on the computer. Some of the questions you will probably figure out fairly quickly. Others may be harder for you. Please try your hardest on each of the questions. You can use scratch paper to work out the answers if you would like. If there is a word on the test that you don’t know how to read, you may use the audio button to hear the word, but I won’t be able to tell you what anything means on the test or explain to you how to figure out any of the math problems. Just try your best on each of the problems.”

We do have some recommendations for taking these tests. For math tests, students have access to the audio feature which will read any text to a student. The audio feature will read the question and answer choices, word for word, with no definition, explanation, or emphasis of any words or answer choices as demonstrated by voice inflections and/or intonation. Also, we do not recommend the use of a calculator unless a student’s IEP stipulates it as an accommodation.
