Yes. Schools that will be administering CBT should prepare to furnish scratch paper to their students for use when taking the tests. At the start of each test session the proctor should hand out scratch paper to each student testing on computers.
CBT ELA: each student should be given one sheet of lined ruled paper, such as loose leaf paper,at the start of testing.
CBT Math: each student should be given one piece of unlined/plain paper and one piece of graph paper at the start of testing.
In addition, for all test sessions the proctor should have on hand a further supply of scratch paper to provide to students who during the test session request additional sheets.
Students testing with CBT should also be advised that any work done on this scratch paper will not be counted. The scratch paper distributed to students testing with CBT must be collected at the end of the session whether used or unused. Note: Scratch paper is considered secure material and must be collected and securely destroyed after testing.
