Description

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.

Procedure

  1. Generally, templates are made from cardboard stock. For example, a student can use an index card to cover text.
  2. Some templates are cut to shape. For example, a template may have a window that fits the space of a math problem.
  3. 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).

Cautions

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.
