How do we set up students to take the Spanish-language field test?

This year, Spanish-Language field tests are available for math in all grade levels. When a student is set up for the Spanish-language field test, the test form (questions/answers) are translated into Spanish as well as the user interface (buttons, navigation, etc.). Students who have the Spanish-language form will also have the option to click "Spanish" on the Nextera Secure Browser login page to enter their username and password into a translated login page. (Note that there is no multi-student edit functionality for Spanish-language for this year, but we are reviewing this for an enhancement for next year.)

Setting Spanish-Language for Math Field Tests

  1. Navigate to a school within the SAFT administration>Content area "Math"
  2. Click the "Students" tab to see all students and locate the needed student
  3. Click "View" to the right of the student you need from the student results list
