Allowed Materials - Scratch and Graph Paper Policy (page 9, Test Administration Manual)
Blank scratch and/or graph paper are allowed for all students for all tests. Scratch paper becomes part of the secure testing materials. Students may not take their scratch paper with them. The proctor should always collect scratch paper at the end of every session. If a student wants to reuse scratch paper on a later session (e.g., notes from the ELA or writing section) he or she may, as long as it is for the same test and it was securely stored between sessions. After the testing window has closed, the school testing coordinator must ensure that all scratch paper is destroyed.
