Presentation: Secure Paper to Desk

Guiding Principles
Case Studies

Some students need to have their test booklets and/or response forms secured to the desk to ensure that the sheets stay in place. Usually, the papers are secured with tape.


  1. Ask the student to get in a comfortable working position.
  2. Place the booklet and/or response form on the table and ask the student to move it into a preferred position.
  3. Tape it down, preferably with masking tape that can be removed easily if necessary.


If the test section is long, the student may grow tired of the response form or booklet being in the same position. Check periodically and move the materials to a different angle if necessary.
