Why Students Use the Mouse

Students must use the mouse, not the keyboard, to select answers in English in a Flash.

This permits the youngest students, students with very limited computer skills, and students with limited English alphabet knowledge to be evaluated because they are not required to recognize alphabet letters on the computer keys to answer questions. The quiz only accepts input from the mouse so that every student starts the quiz with the same required skills, having completed mouse training before the quiz starts.

The teacher or test monitor should be prepared to assist very young students or students with extremely limited English and computer skills as they learn the login process.
