Once testing begins, write the start time, time for testing, and break time on the board. Teachers, make sure you are walking around and vigilant during testing. Make sure students are lining up their answer sheet with the booklet and that they don't skip any questions. Hopefully, you have reviewed your expectations of how students are to use their time wisely during testing and even when they finish.
After testing, collect all materials. Separate blank paper from used paper (paper clip), alphabetize answer sheets and test booklets. Check to make sure bubbles are filled in correctly. Return materials to testing room (proctor will watch students).
Test administrators are responsible for paper clipping students’ test books for the following instances:
Paper Clip before Students Begin Calculator Active Section: When students complete the calculator inactive part of the Mathematics test, the test administrator must paperclip the students’ test books so they cannot return to previously attempted questions.
Paper Clip for Lunch Breaks: In rare cases in which students must leave the testing area for lunch, the test administrator must alert students they have five minutes remaining before the lunch break. Students must be told that their test books will be paper clipped so they cannot return to previously attempted questions
