Known Issue: Do not Distribute Proctor PINs to Students

It has come to our attention that items in a list from a bulleted list on Page 7 in the School Test Administrator's Manual (SAM: http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/sam/ei/eisam17-v1.pdf) should not be read to indicate that Proctor PINs should be distributed to students with other secure testing materials, such as Test Session Access Codes. 

Proctors should assist students with re-accessing the test by entering the Proctor PIN on the student's computer WHEN NECESSARY. The Proctor PIN is used by the Proctor when students who have paused the test, such as to go to the bathroom, need to re-access the test to resume computer-based testing. 

Please do not distribute Proctor PINs to students.
