All five alternate language tests that can be ordered in paper can be administered on computer for math, grades 3-8 and science grades 5 and 8. When a student is set up for an alternate language test, the test form (questions/answers) are translated into the alternate language as well as the user interface (buttons, navigation, etc.). Students who are making use of an alternate language test form will also have the option to click the alternate language on the Questar Secure Browser login page to enter their username and password into a translated login page.
