Accessing Additional Information

There will be times when not all of the information you need will fit on one window. In such cases you will need to scroll or toggle.


Scrolling

Scrolling changes the position of a document in a window. You can scroll up, down, right, or left by using the arrow keys or the mouse. Your mouse may have a scroll wheel located between the two buttons.

To scroll:

  1. Locate the scroll bars. Scroll bars are vertical or horizontal elements that when used with the mouse change the visible range within a document.
  2. Position the mouse over the down arrow at the bottom of the scroll bar. Click the arrow until the additional information is visible. You can also scroll by rolling the scroll wheel located in the middle of the mouse. The scroll wheel may be rolled forward to advance up the page or backward to advance down the page.

Toggling

Toggling is using keystrokes to view the application represented by taskbar buttons. By toggling, you change which application is visible on the desktop. Toggling can only be done when more than one application is running.

To toggle:

  1. Press and hold the Alt key.
  2. While holding the Alt key, press the Tab key. A navigation window opens. An icon for each active application is in the navigation window.
  3. Repeatedly, press the Tab key to navigate through the active applications.
  4. When the desired application has a border around it within the navigation window, release both keys. The application will appear on top of all other windows.

For the purpose of this assessment, toggling should be used when you are instructed to click to see a table, diagram, chart, or additional information that does not fit on the same page as the assessment item. In order to access all pertinent information, it is necessary to toggle between the additional data and the assessment item. If your administrator permits it, the additional information may be printed for reference.
