For Learning Coaches, Guardians, And Parents

  1. Ensure students get some rest the night before a test
  2. Ensure your student has a quiet place to work
  3. Remove items that may distract the students
  4. Remove any electronic devices that may invalidate their assessments (failure to do this will result in either the student receiving a failing grade and/or having to retake the test at another time)
    1. Phones
    2. Tablets
    3. Other devices with internet access
  5. Ensure that there is only ONE internet browsing window open and that only the sites directed by the teacher are available.
  6. If teachers require students to log into a Google Meet, make sure the camera is turned on.
  7. Important: Teachers may be required to use Go Guardian to monitor students’ devices during the testing session. This is to ensure that students are on task, not speeding through, and not looking up answers. Nothing else.
  8. Check in on the student during the testing period to:
    1. Encourage them
    2. Help them stay focused
    3. Encourage them to review their work
  9. Do not assist the student with any content or with any reading of the test items and answers. (Unless this assistance is explicitly stated in an IEP document).
