SPECIAL NOTE FOR GRADES K-3: Some students in
this age/grade group have difficulty filling in the small bubbles on the separate
answer sheet and/or correctly matching questions with the answer bubbles and
grids. Therefore, parents/teachers/test proctors are allowed to assist
the student, as long as the answer is not revealed to the student. If you
think that this action would be too hard for your child, please order the TerraNova-CAT/6
test for these grade levels which does allow the student to fill in the answer
bubble right in the book. If you have any questions regarding this matter,
or any concerns about the test, please feel free to call us at 336-924-2494. We
look forward to assisting you.
• Administration can be completed in 4-6 hours, over 2-3 mornings or spread

be utilized for students with an IEP, special needs or other unique circumstances. This
allows the student to have extra time to complete the test or other such helps
that do not substantially give him the answer, but allows him to overcome learning
difficulties, etc. Feel free to call us for more information or clarification.)
