12 Classroom and Testing Accommodations in USATestprep
Published: Jan. 12, 2017, 3:33 p.m.
USATestprep offers a variety of built-in accommodations on our site. These accommodations fall into two categories: Benchmark Accommodations and Assignments/Projector Based Resources. Benchmark Accommodations
Duplicate Copy - When a benchmark is created, there is an option to make a duplicate copy. This is a great tool to use to meet the needs of diverse learners. The duplicate copy allows you to go in and change the test settings.
Spanish Option - Questions, answers, and passages can be translated into Spanish. If you select this option, the test will not automatically be translated for every student. Instead, there will be a link at the top of the benchmark labeled “Español,” and if a student clicks on this link, the test will be translated.
Reduce Answer Choices - This will reduce the number of answer choices from 4 to 3. It will still show all four answer options, but one will already be eliminated.
Highlighter - We offer a highlighter tool that students can use to highlight key words and phrases.
Audio Available - We offer audio recordings of passages, questions, and answers.
Eliminate Answer - Students can hover over answer choices and choose to “Eliminate” the answer choice. When this is done, a line will be placed through the answer. If a student hovers over the answer choice again, he or she can “Restore” that answer.
Printing Options - Our benchmarks can be printed in larger font sizes and with a variety of spacing options.
Question Filters - When creating a custom benchmark, teachers can filter questions based on Low or High DOK or difficulty level.
Assignments/Projector Based Resources
Multiple Attempts - When creating an assignment, teachers can allow students to have multiple attempts to improve their score.
Minimum Score - Teachers can set a minimum mastery score on assignments.
Difficulty Level - Our practice question difficulty levels can be adjusted to three options: Random, Beginner, or Advanced.
