6 2009 STAR Pre-Test Workshop || Slide 6 January 2009 Administration: Train Examiners Distribute test materials to correct students  Be very careful with similar names—check date of birth  Make sure students mark correct EOC math or science test taken, including grade 7 math or Algebra I  Make sure students mark correct test version number Follow Directions for Administration (DFAs)  Read “SAY” boxes exactly as printed Students may not go back to previous parts of a test Recommend students not use marks to eliminate answers HO 2

7 2009 STAR Pre-Test Workshop || Slide 7 January 2009 Train How to Correctly Mark Accommodations, Modifications, and Variations What are differences among these?
