Description

Students with visual-motor problems may need special paper to help them alignnumbers and compute accurately or write sentences and paragraphs. These studentsmay require graph paper, paper with large lines, or paper with more space betweenthe lines.

Students with visual impairments or blindness may require Braille answer sheets.

Procedure

  1. Make sure that the special paper is available the day of the test.
  2. Have extra sheets onhand.
  3. The student may need specific instructions in how to use the paper for testing purposes. For example, should the student put his or her name on every sheet? Shouldthe student number each sheet? Should the student write the test booklet page number and item number on the sheet?
  4. If the student is using a Braille sheet, prepare it in advance and proofread carefully.

Cautions

Keeping track of the student's answers on separate paper can be a challenge. Someteachers recommend numbering the paper for the student and pre-writing the student'sname (or identification number) on each sheet. In addition, it may be helpful tocreate a set of labels for each test section. When the student moves to a new page orsection on the test, place a label on his or her sheet stating where the student is atthat point.
