The math measures should be administered online, as the student reads each question and selects the best or correct answer. No training or special instructions are needed. If you prefer to give an introduction to the test, 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. The test is untimed. ”
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.
In general, we do not recommend the use of a calculator, unless a student’s IEP stipulates it as an accommodation.
