10/20/17: CBT Weekly Updates, Grades 3-8 ELA and Math

CBT Weekly Updates Call, 10/20/17

  1. We’ve posted brief details about the upcoming data wipe that will happen to Nextera Admin state organization, user, and student data in November: posted to Nextera Admin homepage and as an announcement on CBT Support (https://cbtsupport.nysed.gov/hc/en-us/articles/115005253063).
    • Our goal is to advise the field at least two weeks before the data wipe happens.
    • All users will need to reactivate their accounts for Nextera Admin.
    • Principals and DTCs will be activated automatically based on CBT orders (schools that request CBT exams will be sent login details for the CBT Technology Readiness verification on Nextera Admin).
  2. We have high-level timeframes for CBT “moving parts” that we will share on CBT Support as part of these meeting notes and will be sent out the CBT Listserv
    1. The High-Level CBT timeline has been posted on CBT Support in the "Resources" section. 
  3. The test roadmap is still in review at NYSED but we are working to have this to the field (in the Educator Guides) by the end of October.
  4. There is one more CBT Fall Roadshow at NERIC on Wednesday, October 26—there is still space!
  5. We are working to upload the video of the CBT Statewide Webinar to CBT Support.
