Description

Some students have difficulty writing an answer on a separate sheet of paper. For example, they may lose their place or mark the wrong response item. Marking answers in the booklet can eliminate some of these difficulties.

An adult should transfer answers from the booklet to an answer sheet.

Procedure

  1. Review the test.
  2. Make sure there is ample space for students to respond.
  3. If the test is multiple choice, determine how the student will respond (e.g., circle the letter).
  4. Review the procedures with the student.
  5. Make sure he or she knows how to respond, and monitor for consistency throughout the test. For example, some students may circle a letter sometimes and put an X through it other times.
  6. Be sure students understand the procedure for changing answers (i.e., erase the original answer).
Cautions It may be difficult to develop a set procedure for responding if there are different types of items on a given test. In some cases, the teacher may need to provide explicit directions and possibly an example of how to respond for each new section.
