I have students who require read aloud accommodations for testing. Does PowerTest offer an audio component for testing?
PowerSchool Assessment does not offer an audio component for our online testing format. The end of year SOL tests have an audio component comprised of a human’s voice recording. Given the volume of test items and custom question creation, manual recording is not a viable option for us. However, we are in the processing of researching digital script reading software to one day be included as an option for testing. Currently to address these needs, we offer a Read Along testing format. Essentially you would choose Read Along as the type of test session you want when creating a test session in Testing Center for your exam. This disables all randomization of questions, passages, and answer choices for a students’ test so that as they take their exam, their exam appears in the same order as that of a printed copy of the exam that a proctor would be reading from.
