problem to the teacher in charge. PUNCTUALITY & ABSENTEEISM Write down the room you are writing Check the lists posted in the main hall and in front of the library. It is a good idea to locate that room today so you will know where to go on Tuesday.

You will not have the instructions repeated to you, and you will not be given any extra time to make up for the time that you have missed. Being late will reduce your chances of passing.

If you are absent, you will be required to take the test at the next administration, which is not until Spring 2019. WHAT TO BRING WHAT TO BRING Bring blue or black pens. Any work done in pen other than blue or black

ink will not be scored. Also, bring several sharpened pencils and an eraser. The white erasers work better when erasing material in pencil than the pink erasers found on the end of pencils. Bring highlighters to use on the text in the booklets when you are keeping track of important information.

WHAT TO BRING You are not allowed to use Whiteout. You are allowed to bring water Bring a book to read. You are not allowed to leave the room until you are dismissed. All coats, bags and electronic devises will be placed in the front of the room; you will not have access to them until

from your locker on Monday before you leave school for the day. TEST PROTOCOL TEST PROTOCOL Wait for instructions before unwrapping the booklet.

Remember once the test begins, teachers will not be able to answer any questions. On the inside of each of your test booklets, you will find instructions. Follow the instructions carefully. TEST PROTOCOL

Do not skip lines when you write. Write clearly. Handwriting that cannot be read will not be scored. If you write offensive material, your work may not be scored and the principal will be notified. Straightforward, specific examples from the text is ideal TEST PROTOCOL

If you have any questions once the instructions have been read to you, before the test begins, ask them immediately so the teacher can answer you. Remember to answer all questions. Failing to do so, or leaving a question blank, will reduce your chances of success. TEST PROTOCOL

You will be answering all multiple-choice questions in the Answer Booklets. Remember to bring several sharpened pencils and an eraser to do this. If you wish to change a multiple-choice answer, erase your answer and fill in the circle for your new answer. Do not use whiteout. Ensure that your final answer is darker than the one you have erased. You will be answering all written response questions using a blue or black

pen, or pencil, in the booklet on the lines provided. The amount of lined space indicates the expected length of your response. TEST PROTOCOL Use the space provided for rough notes; jot down ideas and plan your response, but write your response in

the lined space provided. Work completed in the space for rough notes will not be scored. RESPONDING TO THE READINGS
