Instructions for FSA ELA Practice Test

  • Follow the link here on schoolnotes to the practice site.
  • Take the test, but before ending your test or submitting, you need to take a screenshot of the final page. You will see a grid with all of the question numbers on it.  Each box should be blank.  If it has a red triangle in it, it means you did not answer it.  Return to the test and ANSWER IT. 
  • In order to earn full credit AND earn the homework coupon, you will need to print the screen shot of your final page and get a note signed by your parents indicating you did take the practice test on the computer.
  • BEFORE you actually submit/end the test, shrink your screen to ½ size and follow the link to the answer page. Shrink it and place it next to the test.  Look at each answer to see if you answered it correctly.  If not, read the rationale to better understand the correct answer. 
  • If you don’t know how to take a screenshot, Google it for some help. If you can print from your phone, snap a picture of it that way and print it. 
  • As always, if you’re still having trouble, shoot me an email.
