Answer Space for Short- and Extended-Response Items
Do not send in additional pages with students’ mathematics short responses or mathematics and reading extended responses. Only what students have written in the space provided will be scored. There is one page provided for short responses in mathematics. There are two pages provided for extended responses in mathematics and reading. Scanners do not recognize additional pages.
The entire page will be scanned for scoring, so advise students that they may write in the margins to the edges of each page and down to the bottom of the page but that they cannot go beyond those pages.
Any additional pages on which students have written (separate from the answer document or test booklet) should be destroyed locally.
