Spring 2013 Online Writing Tests: How
 Creating test sessions for online SOL Writing tests:
• One difference in test session management when administering
online writing:
• Unlike a non-writing test administration
–
One online SOL Writing test assignment will allow a DDOT or STC to
add that student to two sessions
A
session for the short paper component
 A session for the multiple-choice/TEI component
•
•
Student must complete both components to have a complete,
scorable writing test
A student MUST complete both components in the same mode

Questions and Answers
Q: If there is a student who, based on physical disability, is unable to type (but is able to
write) the writing prompt, will it be allowed for an adult to "transcribe" by
typing his written response into the computer?
A: The adult is allowed to transcribe the student’s written response into the computer for
the student, however the student’s written response and what is typed into the
computer must be verified by a second school staff member to ensure that no errors
occurred in the transcription. Additionally, the student’s written response must be
retained on file and secure in your office until scores are received and verified.
Q: Is Dragon Dictation on the iPad an allowable recording device?
A: Yes, this is allowable under the conditions that Guided Access in used on the iPAD.
Guide Access allows the examiner to give the test taker access to only one application
on the IPAD. If you are considering this for a student who will be participating in the
Writing Test, please submit a Special Accommodation Request so that we can formally
approve and provide all administration conditions.
Q: Is Co-Writer considered an acceptable "word prediction software"?
A: Yes, Co-Writer is acceptable word prediction software. Features must comply with the
