There will be a limited number of open-ended griddable items. For these
items a four-column grid (with the last column designated as a fixed
decimal point) will be provided on the answer document for students to
record and bubble in their answers. Digits must be in the correct
column(s) with respect to the fixed decimal point. Open-ended griddable
answers will be limited to a range between 0 and 999 for fourth grade.
This griddable format is intended to allow students to work the problem
and determine the correct answer independently of the influences of
answer choices.
