ELAR Test Strategies
If I return your test (within the 4 hours) and say:
"You have not recorded your answers on the answer document. Please go back and mark your answers on it now"
This means you missed filling in a bubble for a question. I cannot tell you which question but you can find and fix it.
RESTROOM BREAKS (timer does not stop)
I will gather your materials
I will slide the red paper under the door.
Test monitor will come for you and escort you to the restroom and she will return you.
Silently return to your seat and I will return your testing materials.
Absolutely NO TALKING
Raise your hand for any concerns.
LUNCH TIME (timer will stop)
Class will go to cafteria as usual and eat at the usual tables.
We will have a classroom room break upstairs. All students will be on Voice 0, sit on the wall when done.
To be successful...
You have 4 hours to complete the test, USE THE TIME!!
It is not a race!! USE THE TIME!!
ELAR: re-read passages, questions, repeat
MATH: re-read questions, check your answers, re-check again.
USE THE TIME TO YOUR ADVANTAGE!!

"I can't anwer that for you: just do your best"
WHEN YOU FINISH
When it is over....GO ON VACATION BY FALLING INTO A GOOD BOOK!!!!
Raise your hand and I will collect your materials.
I will review your answer sheet. If your missing any filled in answers; I will say :
" REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST RECORD YOUR RESPONSES ON THE ANSWER DOCUMENT"
YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A WATER BOTTLE. Use sharpie to put your name on it.
Make a book pile on the back tables. Use sticky note for your name.
4 HOUR TIME LIMIT
I will bring you your book.
Use the questions to answer OTHER questions!
USE ALL DRAWINGS, GRAPHICS, and GRAPHS
I CANNOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT IS ON THE TEST, sorry.
Remember: All answers must be bubbled in within the 4 hours.
If I say to you: "Make sure all answers have been recorded on the answer sheet"; it means you are running out of time and need to transfer your answers to the answer sheet NOW!
Some students will have unlimited time (more than 4 hours) and the use of bilingual dictionaries.
Highlight keywords in questions (words that focus on what you need to do)
Identify the question. Is it a....summary, inference, main idea, CASPER
HINT: Put a * next to the question so that you can go back to it later. Make sure to erase the mark when you complete the question.
