Response: Point to Answer

Types of Assessment


Guiding Principles
Case Studies

In the case of tests that have multiple answers, a student may point to the answer and a scribe will record it.


  1. Arrange for a separate room.
  2. Have all materials ready.
  3. It is important that the student understands the procedure to use should he or she wish to change an answer.


Some test booklets may present the responses so close together that it is difficult to determine which response the student actually chose. In such cases it is important to enlarge the page.
