Documentation: How to set student testing accommodations for CBT

Nextera Admin allows test coordinators and teachers to set the following five student testing accommodations for CBT that are delivered via computer: 

  • Text-to-Speech
  • Answer Masking
  • Reverse Contrast
  • Background Color
  • Initial Page Zoom

There are also "Classroom Accommodations" to be be selected that align with options available on the paper answer sheets. These accommodations, such as "flexibility in setting" and "test read," are not delivered via the computer or online experience. Selecting these options in Nextera Admin allows NYS to have better data on our students and their testing experience. 

You can find steps for setting student testing accommodations in the attached PPT slides. The ability for setting student testing accommodations is available at any time prior to administration when class/student data is available in Nextera Admin.
