Technology Enhanced Items in this resource:
SCROLLING TEXT BOX
Students must click the bar on the right to scroll down to see all of the text. Many times students do not realize there is more text while taking a standardized test. This greatly impacts their ability to answer questions correctly. Using a scrolling text box in this resource will prepare them for standardized test.
Students must click correct answers. In most questions there are also multiple correct answers. Students are also asked to choose the BEST answer, which will prepare students to choose the correct answer instead of plausible answers.
DROP DOWN MENUS
Students must choose the correct answer from a drop down box. This includes one question where the students must choose the correct sequencing of details and four questions where students must choose the correct spelling of a word in a drop down box.
Students must check the correct answer in a complicated table where there are multiple columns and rows. Students must choose their answers by clicking in the correct box. This resource will help familiarize your students with this new type of questioning.
