    TEA November 2012


    Special instructions considerations for transcribing
    Special Instructions/Considerations for Transcribing

    • Special features that should be disabled when transcribing for a student using technology-based methods (e.g., word processor, software)

      • Disable internet access

        • For example, an eligible student may use a tablet (i.e., iPad) to type responses, but the Wi-Fi/3G/4G internet access must be disabled and the student must be closely monitored to ensure that the internet cannot be accessed or the camera feature is not used. The student may need to complete the test in a separate setting to ensure the confidentiality of the test.

      • Disable spell check, word predictor, and all other special features (unless the student also meets the eligibility criteria for Spelling Assistance)

    • When transcribing a student’s responses to griddable questions, don’t forget that the test administrator MUST use the “Transcribing Griddable Questions” document so that the student is aware of the maximum number of boxes available for each answer.

    TEA November 2012


    Special instructions considerations for transcribing1
    Special Instructions/Considerations for Transcribing

    • When transcribing a student’s responses to the writing prompts and/or the short-answer reading questions, the test administrator must indicate to the student the space allowed.

      • 26 lines for each written composition

      • 10 lines for each short-answer reading question

    • What are some ways the test administrator can indicate to the student the space allowed?

      • The test administrator or student can use a piece of scratch paper with the correct number of lines or a sample lined page from the answer document (on TEA website) prior to having the response copied to the answer document.

      • Twenty-six lines of handwritten text is approximately 1,725 typed characters. Ten lines of handwritten text is approximately 675 typed characters. These numbers are based on average-sized handwriting.

    TEA November 2012


    Special instructions considerations for transcribing2
    Special Instructions/Considerations for Transcribing

    • The student must be given the full time allotted to complete the test. All of the student’s responses must be initially recorded (e.g., onto scratch paper, the student’s test booklet, typed) by the end of the 4-hour time limit.

      • If necessary, the test administrator may transfer the student’s final responses onto the answer document after the testing period has ended.

      • It is recommended that the test administrator ensure that the student is recording the responses clearly and completely. This must be done before the student leaves the testing room. Any interaction with the student regarding the intended responses is prohibited after the testing period has ended.
