  • Note on the Mathematics and STE Scripts from the Grades 3–8 CBT TAM

    In the Grades 3–8 CBT TAM, the directions in one script for administering Mathematics and STE sessions are incomplete. The directions in question appear in the TAM on the following pages:

    • Mathematics Session 1: page 57
    • Mathematics Session 2: page 67
    • STE Session 1: page 77
    • STE Session 2: page 86


    Step 14 on these pages should read:

    “Read each question carefully and then answer it as well as you can.

    If a question asks you to show or explain your work, you must do so to receive full credit. Enter your response in the box provided on your screen. Only responses entered in the box will be scored.

    If you do not know the answer to a question, you may bookmark it and go on to the next question. When you are finished, you may review your answers and go back to any questions you bookmarked.

    Before you submit your answers at the end of the test session, be sure that you have responded to every question and have not left anything blank or unanswered.”
