During testing, if you would like to make a reading passage bigger until you are ready to answer the questions, you may expand that reading passage so that it takes up the entire page. If you use the expandable passages tool, your screen will look like this once you have followed these next steps.

To expand the reading portion of the screen, select the double-arrow button in the upper-right side of that section using your mouse or trackpad. The reading section will then expand to fit the entire screen. When you are ready to answer the questions, return the reading section to the original size by selecting the double-arrow button again.
