  • The State of California Department of Education logo appears on a black chalkboard background. It is a blue circle on a white background with "DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION" written in white letters on the upper half and "STATE OF CALIFORNIA" written in white letters below. In the circle is a pen, a ruler, a scroll, a quill in an inkwell, and a stack of books sitting on a wooden table. A brass oil lamp is sitting on top of the books and there is a flame coming from its spout.
  • White text appears beneath the logo: "Universal Tools: Science Charts Video Tutorial."
  • The logo and text fade.
  • White text appears on a black chalkboard background: "For the purposes of the instructional video, a previous version of the Science Training Test has been used. While the equation sheets shown are not the same versions that will be used on the CAST field test, students should familiarize themselves with these available resources."
  • The screen changes to an image of an online science test. On the upper left side of the screen, there are five buttons labeled [Back], [Next], [Save], [Pause], and [End Test]. On the upper right side of the screen there are six buttons labeled [Periodic Table], [Formulas], [Calculator], [Line Reader], [Zoom Out], and [Zoom In]. On the left half of the page there is a visual diagram of a map and a question about it in the middle. Below the question, there is an interactive image where the user can virtually manipulate test tubes and a testing machine to get more information about the diagram above. On the right half of the page there is a multiple choice question and a short answer question.

  • There are a variety of resources that can be used on test day. This video will show how to use the Science charts. During testing, Science charts will be available for use. This is what the science charts will look like once you have followed these next steps. During the California Science Test or CAST, you will see that there are two additional buttons to select. One is the Periodic Table selection. The second is the Formulas selection.

  • A window labeled Periodic Table appears in the center of the screen. Below is the periodic table of elements, as well as a Legend near the top of the screen explaining how to read the table. There is an [X] button in the upper right corner of the screen. On the right side of the window there is a scroll bar.
  • The window is replaced by one labeled Formulas. There are a variety of different sections below with labels like Energy and Momentum, and Waves and Light. Within the sections are scientific formulas corresponding to those concepts. On the right side of the window there is a scroll bar to show the other sections. There is an [X] button in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • The Formulas window disappears.

  • Here is what you will see if you select the Periodic Table selection. A pop-up window will appear showing the periodic table. If you would like to move the location of the periodic table, you can drag it to any location on the screen using your mouse or track pad. You can also expand the periodic table box by hovering on any of the edges, selecting the edge, and dragging the edge to expand the box. When you are done using the periodic table, you may either select the X in the upper right corner of the box or select the Periodic Table button at the top of the screen.

  • The cursor selects the [Periodic Table] button at the upper right of the screen, and the Periodic Table window appears in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • The cursor selects the top part of the Periodic Table window and drags it to the center of the screen.
  • The cursor selects the right edge of the Periodic Table window, just to the right of the scroll bar, and drags it further right, causing the window to become wider.
  • The cursor selects the [Periodic Table] button at the top of the screen again. The window closes.

  • Here is what you will see if you select the Formulas button. If you would like to move the location of the formula box, you can drag it to any location on the screen using your mouse or track pad. While you will not be able to expand the formula box, you will be able to scroll up, down, left, and right using the navigation arrows or bars at the bottom and right of the box. When you are done using the formula box, you may either select the X in the upper right corner of the box or select the Formulas button at the top of the screen.

  • The cursor selects the [Formulas] button at the upper right of the screen, and the Formulas window appears in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • The cursor selects the top part of the Formulas window and drags it to the center of the screen.
  • The cursor selects the scroll bar on the right side of the window and drags it further upward, causing the window to scroll up through the different formula sections.
  • The cursor selects the [Formulas] button at the top of the screen again. The window closes.
