  1. The CBT Winter Roadshows are over! The Statewide Webinar video is posted: https://cbtsupport.nysed.gov/hc/en-us/articles/115005264923-Video-CBT-Statewide-Webinar-October-18-2017
  2. New Secure Browser practice tests have been released: https://cbtsupport.nysed.gov/hc/en-us/articles/360000813612-Secure-Browser-Practice-Test-Logins-2018
    • We are receiving some reports of folks not realizing that the logins are new this year
      • As a first step, if you receive an inquiry, please check the following two issues:
        • Does the username have the “g” between subject and grade? (The new username format for this year.)
        • Is the user inadvertently copying in extra spaces if using copy/paste for the usernames or passwords?
      • Reminder: the Secure Browser practice tests are exactly the same as the practice tests offered in the Question Sampler.
  3. Links to the Scoring Materials on EngageNY have been posted to CBT Support:

    • Registration may be posted today, but we may wait until next week.
  5. We are working with Questar on providing better details on how to use the Multi-Student Edit and want to release a Quick Reference Guide.
    • This is a wonderful feature that can greatly improve efficiency for managing student testing accommodations. Stay tuned for more details on this topic.
