  • Some test questions require headphones.  Students may bring their own WIRED headphones to use during test.  Wireless headphones are not permitted.  If a student doesn't have their own wired headphone, one will be provided.
  • Students may not "take walks" or be in hallways unsupervised on test days.  When a student takes a bathroom break during a test, their time does NOT stop.
