Accessibility Tools

The Accessibility Tools are a set of accommodation tools which are designed to aid the Test-taker in various ways when taking tests.

The Accessibility Tools which have been activated for a Test can be found in the Properties Panel on the right.

Note: Accessibility tools can be activated either for a whole Section of a test, or for each Item. Not all Accessibility Tools are activated for every test - this depends on the test configuration.

The tools available are as follows:
