The School Administrator's Manual for Computer-Based Testing is now available online. Users may access the SAM in Nextera Admin. It is also posted on the OSA website at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/fieldtest/SAM-CBT_2016.pdf.
The instructions in the SAM explain the responsibilities of school administrators for the New York State Grades 3–8 English Language Arts and Mathematics Field Tests. School administrators must be thoroughly familiar with the contents of the manual and the policies and procedures must be followed as written so that field testing conditions are uniform statewide.
This School Administrator’s Manual for Computer-Based Field Testing serves to guide school administrators in sign-in and general field test administration activities, such as using Nextera™ Admin.
