Ensure that there is adequate space (3 feet) between students that are testing.
For any paper based accommodations ensure the security of materials
Ensure all electronic devices are not in students’ possession.
Prior to testing, make sure students understand the following policies:
Electronic Devices Policy: If students are found with ANY electronic device during testing, their tests will be invalidated. Define electronic devices for students and ensure they are aware they cannot access their devices until testing is completely finished.
Leaving Campus: If students leave campus before completing the test (for lunch, an appointment, illness, etc.), they WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test.
Student Pledge: Students will be asked to agree to a pledge stating that they will not give or receive unauthorized help during the test. If students are caught cheating or irregular answer patterns are detected during scoring, their tests will be invalidated.
