From Greg Schaffer
I am passing along answers to some common question answered by Mike Leach form Cesa 1.
I have answered what I can in BOLD next to each question... to the BEST of my ability in "air quotes" :)
Would students be allowed to use graphic organizers (paper and pencil) to organize their thoughts prior to doing the writing for the ELA Performance Task, or the other questions?
Would there be the same restrictions as using graph paper or scrap paper - collect and securely destroy after the writing is finished, or would it not allowed at all?
Prior to our meeting yesterday, my understanding was that you could not leave a question unanswered. Is it really possible to leave a question unanswered but flagged for review?
Will you be able to go on in the test with an unanswered/flagged question, or only until the end of that page?
If you pause the test, or leave it for more than 20 minutes, will you be able to go back to those unanswered/flagged questions?
Will the test let you submit at the end without answering those questions?
Do we know how many questions there will be in the CAT portion of the test?
(What is it being called now, BTW, since it is no longer computer adaptive?)
Did you find the answer to the question - since it is no longer computer adaptive, are all the assessments the same?
Are the questions in a different order for each student? Do they draw from a bank, so they may have different questions?
