6 Test Invalidation Lets talk about the term test invalidation. If your test is invalidated, it means that your test will not be scored, and you will not be able to retake the same test. 6

7 Remove all electronic devices. If you have an electronic device at your desk, in your pocket, or ANYWHERE you can reach it during testing or during a break within a session, your test will not be scored. 7 To make sure your test is scored...

8 Some examples of electronic devices are: Cell phones or smart phones Handheld video games MP3 players Calculators (unless you are allowed to have an approved calculator) 8 Electronic Devices

9 All electronic devices must be turned off before the test. Your teacher may collect them or instruct you to put them away (in a locker or backpack away from your desk). If you arent sure if something is an electronic device, please ask your teacher before the test. 9

10 To make sure your test is scored... Do your own work. If you are caught looking at another students answers, talking about the test with other students during breaks, or using any kind of unauthorized aid during the test, your test will not be scored. 10

11 To make sure your test is scored... Dont be disruptive. If you are disruptive during a test, you may be dismissed from the room and your test may not be scored. It is very important for you to remain quiet, respect other students, and pay attention to and follow the instructions. 11

12 To make sure your test is scored… Dont leave school. If you leave the schools campus for lunch or an appointment before you complete a test session, you will not be allowed to finish taking the test when you return. 12

13 Testing Rules During the test, you must not: Talk to other students or make any disturbance Look at another students test materials Allow another student to look at your test materials Ask for help answering any test questions Have notes or scratch paper Have any electronic or recording devices in your possession at any time, including breaks, even if you do not use them Fail to follow any other instructions given 13

14 Testing Rules Before the test, your test administrator will read the testing rules aloud and ask you to read the Testing Rules Acknowledgment. You will be asked to sign your name below the Testing Rules Acknowledgment to show that you understand the rules. 14

15 Marking Your Answers You are allowed to circle or underline words in the reading passages, make notes, or work mathematics problems in the blank space in your test book or test and answer book. 15

16 Rulers Students in grades 3 and 4 will use a ruler during Session 2 of the mathematics test. If a test item requires use of a ruler, it will say so in the directions for that item. 16

17 Reference Sheets Grades 5, 6, 7, 8, and Retake students will receive a reference sheet to use during the Mathematics sessions. Reference sheets contain formulas and conversions that may be needed to answer questions. 17

18 Remember… When you have finished a session, check through your answers for that session to make sure you have filled in only one bubble for each question and that you have answered every question. 18

19 Remember… You may not ask for help in answering any test questions. –Your teacher or test administrator is not allowed to discuss the test or help you read, understand, or answer test questions. Try to answer every question. 19

20 Remember… This may not be your first time taking the FCAT 2.0, but test books, answer forms, and instructions can change at each grade level, so be sure to PAY ATTENTION! 20
