Types of Assessment |
Templates reduce visible print on a page. They also can mask parts of the page (e.g., cover Part 2 while the student is working on Part 1). Templates can cover text that has already been read, or they can cover text that will be needed in the future.
- Generally, templates are made from cardboard stock. For example, a student can use an index card to cover text.
- Some templates are cut to shape. For example, a template may have a window that fits the space of a math problem.
- Or, it may have a window that fits over the responses on the answer sheet (i.e., shows the possible responses for a specific item).
Some teachers recommend making the templates, handing them to the students, and retrieving them at the test's completion. Students should be taught a routine for using the template in advance of the test.
