Administration

The test must be administered in a formal test environment with students made aware that they are taking a test and that the usual expectations of behaviour and constraints of a test session will be in place.

Each student will need either their own personal computer with a mouse, or a tablet, along with a high quality set of headphones. You are advised to check that headphones are working and that sound levels are appropriate before logging on to Testwise.

All administration instructions are incorporated into the test program but please introduce the test session and check that students understand the instructions and the method of answering by walking around the room as they work through these parts of the test.

When students are settled, explain that they are going to take a test that will show how well they can read and understand what they have read. Students must work in silence but if they have a query they should raise their hand and wait for the teacher to approach them. Answer any questions at this stage and explain that you cannot help with any of the test questions.
