titleCurrent TestNav Accommodations available through PNP

Add Time - Allows students additional testing time during a timed test. To give an student additional testing time, provide the addTime node in the registration APIs (before the student logs into the test), and include these settings:

  • support: "true"
  • mult (multiplier): 0 (zero) or a value in the 1.1-10.0 range

A 0 (zero) mult value causes the test to deliver a timed form or timed sections on a timed form without a timer. A 1.1-10.0 mult value results in that test form's timer value multiplied by the mult value. For example, a mult of 1.5 for a one-hour test results in the student having a 90-minute timer instead of a 60-minute timer.

Tests ignore the addTime node if:

  • The test is untimed.
  • Support is set to anything besides true.
  • Mult is set to any value other than 0 or a value in the 1.1-10.0 range.

Any changes you make to the addTime node after the student first logs into the test will also not affect the timer.

Answer Mask - Limits what students sees to help them focus on sections of text. Based on the PNP, multiple choice item choices are masked when the item is first presented. The student can turn masks on or off at any time.

Line Reader - Assists student to read content by moving a reading tool down line-by-line. Based on the PNP the registration system supplies.

Color Contrast (background/font color) - Allows student to choose a text and background color combination different from the default presentation. Helps students with visual discrimination problems. Based on the PNP the registration system supplies.

Available color choices include:

  • black-cream (black on cream)
  • black-lblue (black on light blue)
  • black-lmagenta (black on light magenta)
  • white-black (white on black)
  • yellow-blue (yellow on blue)
  • dgray-pgreen (gray on green)

Screen Reader - Allows students to use screen readers during secure tests. Only allows specified screen readers supplied in the PNP from the registration systems to run during secure tests.

For non-secure tests, screen readers are not restricted, and PNP settings do not have any impact.

Spell Check - Allows students to check their spelling within the rich text editor.

Calculator (must configure in assessment management system) -

  • Four-function - Allows for a Four-function calculator accommodation on a non-calculator section of a test. 
  • Five-function - Allows for a Five-function calculator calculator accommodation on a non-calculator section of a test. 
  • Scientific - Allows for a Scientific calculator accommodation on a non-calculator section of a test. 
  • TI Graphing - Allows for a TI Graphing calculator accommodation on a non-calculator section of a test. 
  • TI 108 Basic - Allows for a TI 108 Basic calculator accommodation on a non-calculator section of a test. 
  • T130 Scientific - Allows for a T130 Scientific calculator accommodation on a non-calculator section of a test.

TestNav Whitelist

Download the TestNav whitelist document for details on assistive technology (AT) devices, brands and manufacturers, product names, technology classifications, necessary hardware/software, versions and compatible operating systems. To allow the listed AT devices to access TestNav content during kiosk-mode testing, you must add relevant executable files to the TestNav whitelist.

Note

After the files are whitelisted, TestNav will not block these devices and technologies; however, this does not guarantee full compatibility with TestNav. Pearson also does not guarantee that testing was performed on every AT in the whitelist document.

For more information, contact your Pearson technology representative.
