# Grid-Ins

## Student-Produced Response

Here are some general hints for answering Student-Produced Response questions, also called Grid-Ins.

- Since answer choices aren't given, a calculator may be helpful in avoiding careless mistakes on these questions.
- It's suggested that you write your answer in the boxes above the grid to avoid errors in gridding.
- The grid can hold only four places and can accommodate only positive numbers and zero.
- Do not worry about which column to begin gridding the answer. As long as the answer is gridded completely, you will receive credit.
- Unless a problem indicates otherwise, an answer can be entered on the grid either as a decimal or as a fraction.
- You don't have to reduce fractions like 3/24 to their lowest terms.
- Convert all mixed numbers to improper fractions before gridding the answer.
- If the answer is a repeating decimal, you must grid the most accurate value the grid will accommodate.
- Some questions may have more than one right answer.
- You don't lose any points for a wrong answer.
- Know the gridding rules before taking the test.
