Students are required to participate in a practice test using the ePAT with the same accommodations that will be provided to them on the operational assessment.
The accommodated ePATs must be downloaded and installed on the computer workstation that will be used for the practice test.
TestHear ePATs will only operate on Windows PC workstations and on Macintosh workstations that have Mac OS 10.5 or later installed and are running Windows (e.g., via Boot Camp). TestHear ePATs will not work on Mac OS 10.4 or on Macs that cannot also run Windows.
Instructions for installing and running TestHear ePATs are provided in the 2013 EOC Technology Coordinator Guide.
TestHear must be installed locally on all computers that will be used by students requiring accommodated CBT forms (e.g., large print, zoom, screen reader, color contrast, assistive devices).
Instructions for downloading and installing TestHear are provided in the 2013 EOC Technology Coordinator Guide.
TestHear will only operate on Windows PC workstations and on Macintosh workstations that have Mac OS 10.5 or later installed and are running Windows (e.g., via Boot Camp). TestHear will not work on Mac OS 10.4 or on Macs that cannot also run Windows.
