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.
