Attached is a simple seven-step transition checklist to help schools that are considering the transition to computer-based testing (CBT). This checklist is a high-level list of considerations or decisions that can help a school answer the question, "can our school transition to CBT this year?"
For each step, you can locate resources on CBT Support for more information. Additionally, you can contact CBT Support email if you need assistance with any details in a transition step.
- Note that a school can choose to administer CBT by subject and grade level for Grades 3-8 ELA and Math. A decision to administer CBT in a subject or grade level in one year does not affect a decision to administer CBT in a subject or grade level in the following year. Schools have the option to choose the best fit for administering CBT for their school.
- Note that the requirement remains for a school to test all students within a grade level on the same two consecutive days within the primary six-day test administration window.
