How do we access ELA practice tests in the Nextera Secure Browser?

The additional practice tests can only be accessed from the Nextera Secure Browser, which requires the student testing device to have the Nextera Secure Browser installed and tested before the student can access the practice test. You can locate browser and Operating System specific downloads on the “Downloads” page under the Help tab on the banner toolbar in Nextera Admin.

Attached is a complete list of usernames and passwords for the ELA practice tests. 

All practice test passwords are “practice” and the complete list of usernames is also available in Nextera Admin from the Help page, and the username format is a standardized format: 

ELA Grade Level Username Password
Grade 3 ela03 practice
Grade 4 ela04 practice
Grade 5 ela05 practice
Grade 6 ela06 practice
Grade 7 ela07 practice
Grade 8 ela08 practice

Upon logging into the Nextera Secure Browser, the user will see options to select from the three available practice tests for the grade level. The basic usernames and passwords are listed below and the complete list is available in Nextera Admin and on CBT Support. The usernames and passwords are not case-sensitive.
