Utilize GA OAS for CRCT prep. This session will cover creating and administering tests through GA OAS.
If you are a PC user you have the advantage of being able to import your quetsions from a Microsoft Word document for use with SMART Response. Below is the link to the handout for this procedure. It is very simply and does not take much time. If you are considering giving a SMART Response test with more than 20 questions, this may be a good option for you. I do not believe it is worth the time, though, if you are doing a short quiz. In that case, you would be better of to create the questions one at a time. Once you import, you can customize your notebook pages any way you like.
