  7. 7. Seating Students  How to complete Seating Chart:  Do not let students choose their own seats  Optional to do in advance, should be in pencil  Seating charts must turned in with test materials  Start Time: Every room should begin by 7:45 a.m.  How to handle Late Arrivals: (Page 19)  Students who arrive late may only join if the timed test has not begun. Do not admit students to any room where Section 1 (or any later section) has already begun. If a student arrives late, please notify supervisor/hall monitor (Mike & Mary Jo)  Late students who arrive prior to Section 1, but after Pre- Administration has started, the student may supply missing information after the test before students are dismissed.
  8. 8. Pre-Administration  Follow Script: Begins @ the bottom of Page 9 of Test Supervisor Manual. In total, Pre- Administration involves pages 9-12 of the Test Supervisor Manual.  Lasts about 45 min  Can be done after test is complete with individual student.  Boxes
