SAT Administration Procedures The following is our district policy for administration of the SAT-10 tests in terms of reading of instructions/questions and timing of tests. Reading Instructions/Questions Many sections of the SAT-10 are dictated by the test administrator (i.e. teacher) who reads both general instructions and specific test questions to the students. Instructions/questions should only be read once. It is assumed that the test administrator will read the script exactly* as it is written. *Make markers at the school-level or substitute the word “finger” for the word “marker” in the script
SAT Administration Procedures (cont.) Timing The test publisher states that SAT-10 is not a timed test. However, the following guidelines should be used to administer SAT-10. General Rule : Allow enough time for students to have the opportunity to answer all questions they are capable of answering. Pacing for Dictated Sections : Test administrators should read instructions and questions clearly and slowly to allow for optimal comprehension by all students. After each question, a maximum of 20 seconds should be allowed for students to mark a response.
SAT Administration Procedures (cont.) Pacing (cont.) Test administrators do not need to wait for every student to mark an answer before moving to the next test question. Administrators and proctors should be monitoring students to make sure that they are following along and on the correct test question as testing proceeds. Timing for Independent Sections (where students work on their own): Suggested times in the manual should be enough for all students to finish all test questions. If not, allow enough time for all students to finish but no more than double the suggested time.
