  • There are a variety of resources that can be used on test day. This video will show how to use masking. This designated support is something that may be assigned by a teacher, depending on a student’s need. During testing, masking can be used to block out any part of the text you do not wish to see by allowing you to select and black out that portion. This is what masking will look like once you have followed these next steps.

  • To use masking, select the [Masking] button in the upper-right corner of the screen using your mouse or trackpad. You will notice that once you have selected the [Masking] button, it will change colors, indicating you are now able to use it. To mask a part of the text in the reading pane, select and drag until you have a box that contains what you would like to mask. Release your device, and the selection will turn dark, masking the section you have selected. Masking can be used in more than one section at a time. If you would like to remove any of the masked sections, select the [X] in the upper-right corner of the masked section. Once you are ready to close masking, select the [Masking] button again. It will change to its original color, indicating that masking is no longer turned on. Note that different devices may require different actions in order to make these selections. Thanks for watching.
