How to assign the text-to-speech (or read-aloud) accommodation to a student.

To enable the built-in text-to-speech functionality on a MAP Growth assessment for a student:
  1. Create or open a test session as normal and assign the test to a student. See Set Up Testing for Students in the MAP Help Center.
  2. Select the students you wish to assign text-to-speech to.
  3. Select the Accommodations button.
  4. In the Embedded Designated Features section, select Text-to-speech. Note that text-to-speech is not supported for K-2 or Spanish assessments.
  5. Select Assign at the bottom of the screen.
  6. When the student starts their test, they will see the text-to-speech buttons in the toolbar.
