This will also be true for the 2019 CBT Administration.
For those test coordinators and RIC coordinators who are monitoring student testing status on Nextera Admin, you will notice that the times are being reported in Central Standard Time (CST) zone instead of Eastern Standard Time (ETS) zone. This is a difference of one hour.
You will see student testing start/end times on the Nextera Admin homepage Testing Status Dashboard (what we have referred to as "the donut") and also on the Tests and Testing Status Details pages on Nextera Admin.
Please note that student test times will be reported correctly in data provided to NYS. The student testing start/end times will be reported in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
