The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of teaching the Test-Taking Strategy to high-functioning adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) through an intensive after-school program. Four secondary students participated in the study (i.e., one 11th, one 10th, one 8th, and one 6th grader). A multiple-probe design with four phases (i.e., baseline, instruction, generalization, maintenance) was used to measure the effects of the test-taking instruction. The results of this study showed that high-functioning adolescents with ASD can successfully acquire, generalize, and maintain the use of a comprehensive test-taking strategy. In addition, both participants' and their parents' satisfaction related to the test-taking instruction was high. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
