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. See Accommodations and Accessibility in the MAP Help Center.
  4. Scroll to either the Embedded Designated Features section and the Embedded Accommodations section.
    • The text-to-speech options are located under both sections, and the functionality is the same under either section.
  5. Select Text-to-speech.
  6. Select the areas of the test item that will be read aloud. Note that text-to-speech is not supported for K-2 or Spanish assessments. The options are listed below:
    • Answer choices
    • Assets such as reading passages
    • Question directions
    • Questions/prompts
  7. Select Assign at the bottom of the screen.
  8. When the student starts their test, they will see the text-to-speech buttons in the toolbar.
