Some students must use technology to respond to test items. For example, they maywrite their answers on a computer (with or without a spell checker) or use a portablelaptop device.


  1. Make sure that the equipment is available and working properly.
  2. Determine a procedure for identifying the student's work.
  3. Explain how the student should use theequipment to respond (for example, should the student identify the item in a specialway?).


As with any technological tool, there is always the possibility that a student mayinadvertently erase his or her answers. To prevent this from happening, it is important to periodically remind the student to save his or her work.
