Depending on how a test is configured, TestNav displays tools for students to use during online testing. Students can access the highlighter and spell check tools within items, and other tools within the TestNav toolbar.

## Highlighter Tool

Most tools appear within the TestNav toolbar; however, the highlighter tool is available for students to use without clicking on an icon in the toolbar. Instead, turn on the highlighter by selecting a word or group of words.

Highlight color choices differ, depending on the background and foreground color.

Play the video to see a demonstration of the highlighter tool.

## Spell Check

Students can turn on the spell check when answering an item that requires a textual, extended response. When spell check is on, a squiggly red line appears underneath misspelled words, and students see word suggestions for misspelled words.

Spell check does not check words that are all in caps (HELLO) or words that are inverse camel cased (CaMeL). It does check regular camel case (cAmEl).

Spell check uses the Hunspell dictionary and requires an Internet connection to compare the typed words with the dictionary on Pearson servers.
If there is no Internet connection, spell check does not check the words.

## TestNav Toolbar

Tools in the table are displayed in the order that they appear within the toolbar below. Tool order varies by test.
