Form numbers are used for paper assignments, not online assignments. Each paper practice, exercise, test, diagnostic test, and Extended Response assignment has a form number at the top. Accelerated Math uses form numbers for two purposes:
Form numbers identify the paper assignment when you score it. If the student marks his or her answers on a scan card, the student marks the form number at the top of the scan card. If the teacher scores a paper assignment by entering the answers at the keyboard, the teacher enters the form number before scoring the assignment. If the student uses the Renaissance Responder or NEO 2 to enter his or her answers for a paper assignment, the student must enter the form number first. (Note: Renaissance Responders and NEO 2 will no longer be supported after future software updates.)
If you use AccelScan for scoring, form numbers also tell you when you need to start using a new scan card. Accelerated Math assignments do not include enough problems to fill a standard scan card. To help you get the most use out of your scan cards, Accelerated Math starts a student's next assignment with the next available problem number on the scan card. When there are not enough blank problems left on the card for the assignment you are generating, Accelerated Math will use a new form number on the assignment.
Important: Each type of paper assignment has its own form number and requires its own card, even if a card has not been used up for another assignment type.
