Documentation: How to Set Not Testing Codes

Nextera Admin allows test coordinators to set Not Testing Codes on a student-by-student and session-by-session basis from the "Testing Status Details" page. Not Testing Codes must be set for students who are enrolled in a CBT grade level. 

You can find steps for setting Not Testing Codes in the attached PPT slides. The ability for schools to set Not Testing Codes is available as soon as students are loaded to Nextera Admin. The following list of Not Testing Codes are available to be set for students for CBT:

  • Absent for entire test
  • Absent for session
  • Administrative error, no score
  • First-year ELL student
  • Medically excused
  • Not enrolled at time of test
  • Refused session
  • Refused to take entire test
  • Taking NYSSA
  • Taking Regents
  • Testing on Paper*

*This is the only Not Testing Code that does not appear on the print answer sheets. This is a CBT-only Not Testing Code.
