Dear Technology Coordinator, Thank you in advance for your technical assistance with the upcoming technology inservice training. We will be working with the Elements of Literature One-Stop Planner®, which consists of two CD-ROMs containing all of the teacher resource materials for the program. The CD contains the installation software for the ExamView® Test Generator program, Holt Calendar Planner, and Holt PuzzlePro®. For your convenience the CD also includes a version of Adobe Acrobat Reader®, but you may wish to use a newer version that can be found on Adobe’s web site. For this training, teachers will need to be able to view the CD-ROM to see the .pdf files of the print ancillaries and access the test generator and the banks that ExamView will load at installation. All software included is designed to be compatible on both Macintosh® and Windows® platforms. Teachers and students will also need access to our educational web site,, where they can access literary links, author biographical information, projects and activities, and interactive writing and vocabulary activities. We will also be registering teachers for online privileges on the Holt Online Learning web site. Registering will allow teachers to set up classes that will assign user names and passwords to their students. Students then may access the online textbooks and Holt Online Assessment. These resources are hosted on our web site; therefore, all you will need is Internet access to the site In order for students to view the online books and use interactive lessons, the following plug-ins should be available to the browser: Flash 6.1+, Shockwave 8.5.1+, Quicktime 5+, Adobe Acrobat Reader. Should you need assistance with any aspect of installing the software, please contact Technical Support at 800.323.9239. They are available Monday through Friday from 6:00 am to 12:00 am (EST) and on Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (EST).

Thank you,

State-Specific Resources Downloading Lesson Plans with State Objectives Before downloading, create a folder in the location where you save your lesson plans—a location where you will know where you put it (for example, in My Documents, create a file called Lesson Plans).

1. From your One-Stop Planner®, click the gold State-Specific button on the opening screen.

2. From the map, click on your state.

3. From the Lesson Plan menu, choose either Macintosh or Windows.

4. Choose Save and select the folder you have just created. Click Save again. After the .zip file has downloaded, click Open Folder. You will have a zipped folder called Lesson (or one similar to the title pictured).

5. At this step, operating systems differ. For Windows XP, right-click and choose WinZip, Extract from the drop-down menu. For Macintosh instructions, refer to your help menu or call Technical Support to assist you if you do not know how to extract a zipped file.

6. A new file folder has been created (i.e.: EOLit07 First Course LPs). This folder contains subfolders with new .pdf and editable Work, Works, and Claris lesson plans. These lesson plans have the state objectives in them. They are NOT connected to the editable lesson plans from the One-Stop Planner®, however. If you want to use these after previewing from the One-Stop Planner®, you will need to manually open the individual lesson plan.

Downloading EXAMVIEW® with State Objectives

1. From the ExamView Downloads, choose either Macintosh or Windows.

2. Choose Open. This could take some time. You may also choose to Save and then open the file later.

3. After the .zip file has downloaded, you will have three files.

4. Choose Setup.exe.

This will install a new version of ExamView® with your state objectives. You will find the state objectives on the answer key of the tests you create.

Using the QuickTest Wizard 1. Click or choose QuickTest Wizard from the File menu. If you just started the program or switched to the test builder, you can choose Create a New Test using the QuickTest Wizard from the Startup menu.

2. Enter the test title and click the Next button.

3. Double-click a folder (if necessary) to display a list of question banks.

5. When you’ve finished, click on the Finish button at the bottom of the screen to load the questions into your test.

Customizing Your Test After you create a test, you can customize the appearance of the test by changing the order of the questions, editing test instructions, specifying the font and style for selected test elements, and choosing whether to leave space for students to write their answers directly on the test. The changes you make to the questions will not change the original question bank. Your changes are made only to the copy of the questions on the test you just created.

Editing a Test Question

1. Highlight the question to edit in the test window.

2. Click the Edit button located at the bottom of the test window or double-click the question to display an editing window. 3. You can now edit the question, change the answer, update the narrative, insert a graph or equation, or modify the question information (objectives, difficulty code, reference, topic, or notes). See the Entering/Editing Questions help topic for more detailed instructions. 4. Click the Record button to accept the changes you made to the question. The program applies the changes only to the copy on the test. The original question in the question bank is not updated. Tip: Use the Question Bank Editor to permanently change a question or to add a new question for use on other tests.

Deleting a Test Question

1. Highlight the question to delete.

2. Click the Delete button located at the bottom of the test window.

3. Confirm that you want to remove the question from the test.

Important: Removing a question you selected from a question bank does not affect the original question. However, the program will permanently delete any new question you may have created and/or a question you have edited. Tip: Use the Clear Selections command to quickly delete all questions or to remove questions you selected from a particular question bank.

Reordering Test Questions

1. Choose Reorder from the Question menu.

2. Click and drag an individual question, a question type group, or a narrative group to the new location in the list. You can also press CTRL+UP ARROW/DOWN ARROW to move the highlighted question.

Rules: + You can move a question only within the same question type. + To move an entire question type group (e.g., multiple choice), click on the question type and drag it to the desired location. + You can move a group only to certain places in the list. The insertion bar appears as a thick line to indicate where you may move the question group. + Questions attached to a narrative can be moved only within the same narrative group. + A question that is not a part of a narrative group cannot be moved into that group. Likewise, you cannot move a question linked to a narrative outside of the group. + Matching questions can be moved only within the same matching group.

3. Repeat Step 2 for each item you want to move.

4. Click OK to update the current test.

Scrambling Test Questions You can use the Scramble option if you want to randomly arrange the questions on a test. This option permanently changes the question order on a test. 1. Choose Scramble from the Question menu. The Scramble option is different from the Reorder command in that the Reorder command lets you move questions one at a time or in a group. You can also move them exactly where you want the questions to appear. With the Scramble option, the program randomly rearranges the questions. If you prefer, you can automatically generate different versions when you print a test.

2. Choose one or more of the scramble options: Sections, Questions, or Choices.

3. You may assign a new test ID (A -Z) each time you scramble the questions.

4. Click OK to scramble the current test.

When you have finished creating your test, you can print it and/or save it. Choose File>Print to print a test. You may choose how many copies of the test you want, whether you want all the copies to be the same, whether you want to scramble the questions and the multiple choice options. If you scramble the questions, ExamView® will print a custom answer sheet for each variation of the test. An identification letter (A-Z) for each version will appear in the upper righthand corner of your test and answer key. You can change the header under Test from the drop-down menu.

Introduction to the

Holt Calendar Planner The Holt Calendar Planner helps you create a customized school-year calendar by using the same lesson plans that appear on the One-Stop Planner® CD-ROM. To set up your calendar, use the buttons at the bottom of the main screen in the order in which they appear: Settings, then Calendar.


1. School Start Date and School End Date - In the fields at the top of the screen, enter the first and last days of your school year in the format (dd/mm/yyyy). Click the Show button to show the school days.

2. Add Holidays - A checklist of common holidays appears on the left side of the screen. Click the check box next to each to add that holiday to your calendar. Below the checklist is a toolbox for designating other “no-class days” on your calendar: Holiday, In-Service/Professional Development, and School Break. The program will assume that you do not teach class on these days and will not assign lessons on the marked days. Click on Clear to return your mouse pointer to white and to stop marking “no-class days.”

3. Cancel, Next, and Help Buttons - CANCEL will open a window that asks you if you are sure you want to close without saving. You can click YES to exit or CANCEL to return to the screen. Next will take you to the second step in setting up your school year. Help opens the file that contains these directions for the program.

4. Set Class Times - This screen allows you to set parameters for the class for which you are creating the present calendar.

• Class Times category - Click one of the radio buttons to indicate the type of schedule for this class: Daily/Traditional - Choose this category if your class meets every day. Alternating Days - Choose this category if your class meets every other day. Custom - Use this category to manually choose the days a class meets by clicking the box next to the days of the week listed. You can choose multiple days from this list.

• For all three types of class time categories, you must also assign a class length by filling in the minutes in the text field to the right.

• If you select Alternating Days, there is an additional text field to enter the Class Start Date. Enter the first day the class will meet.

• Name your Calendar/Class. A text field for assigning a name to your class calendar will appear at the bottom of the screen. (Example: 5th Period Literature Class)

You can use this window to insert your own text into the Calendar pane, such as additional lesson plans for materials not included in the textbook, additional teaching notes, or additional information about the pacing of a particular lesson. You can also use it to insert blank days or to set aside days for review.

8. Navigating - Previous and Next buttons allow you to navigate to the previous or next day, week, month, etc, depending on your current view.

9. Printing Your Calendar
