For Student Marks Answers in Test Book Test Administrations

Students with the Student Marks Answers in Test Book accommodation do not receive an answer sheet during testing.  Therefore, in order to provide them with equitable access to the demands of the gridded response items and constructed response items, schools may provide these students with the sample grids and sample response space during testing.  These documents should be printed locally and treated as secure test materials once printed for testing purposes.  The documents may be enlarged locally for students who require large print materials.

Teachers may also use these documents before testing day as a resource to prepare students for testing.  The documents do not need to be considered secure under these circumstances.
