Braille Resources

The Braille PSSA Item Samplers are now available in contracted braille format.
Item Samplers for students who will take the PSSA in Braille format are available and will need to be ordered by contacting Ms. Cathy Nadberazny at the PaTTAN AIM Center by phone at 1.800.360.7282 extension 3317 or by email at If possible, please return the Item Sampler that includes tactile graphics. An envelope with a return address is being sent so that the tactile graphics can be returned. Please note that no new items have been added since the 2010 Braille Item Samplers were released last year.
The samplers can be accessed below and are in a braille-ready file (.brf) format which can be embossed locally. The tactile graphics are available in a PDF format which can be reproduced with appropriate equipment (i.e., tactile image enhancer or PIAF) and specialized paper. Please note that these files do not contain any new or additional sample items. They are provided for the convenience of any LEA who may want to emboss locally.
