General arrangements for testing

  • Seat the students so that they cannot easily copy from one another.
  • Be sure the testing room is comfortable and well lit and that the students have room on the desk to handle both the Student Booklet and the Answer Sheet.
  • Place a ‘Testing – Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door.
  • Try to forestall any interruption of the testing session by visitors or announcements.
  • Make sure the students understand the example and practice questions before you start each of the tests in the battery. Help any student having difficulty by repeating or rephrasing the explanations as necessary, but do not provide any additional information beyond that given in the explanations provided in these instructions and in the Student Booklet.
