10/8/20: This article has been updated for the 2020-21 school year.
District Test Coordinators (DTC), District Information Technology Coordinators (DITC), Principals (PRN), School Test Coordinators (STC), Building Level User (BLU), or School Information Technology Coordinators (SITC) of a school administering computer-based tests in the spring are required to verify and submit CBT Technology Readiness on the Nextera Admin website by December 30, 2020. Schools that are unable to verify Technology Readiness will be reverted to paper. NYSED will contact any schools reverted to paper-based testing in January 2021.
The Quick Reference Guide, attached to this article, includes step-by-step instructions for verifying the CBT Technology Readiness Checklist on the school level. All schools administrating computer-based tests in the spring are required to complete and submit CBT Technology Readiness.
If district-level users (DTC,DITC) are verifying for a school or schools in their district, they must first use the "Change" link at the top of Nextera Admin to be recognized as the district AND school.
