Reminder: Touchscreen input only supported for iPads.

We want to remind our districts and schools that touchscreen input by students in the Nextera Test Delivery System is only supported for iPads. 

Page 38 of the Nexera Setup & Installation Guide notes the following Q&A: 

Q: Is touchscreen input functionality supported for iPad, Chromebook or Windows Surface?
A: Touchscreen input functionality is supported for iPad with or without a stylus. Touchscreen input is NOT supported for Chromebooks or Windows Surface machines.

While some schools have reported to us that students are finding they can use the touchscreen on their Chromebooks or Windows machines with the practice tests, this input method is not supported for the New York State computer-based tests.

  • Questar does not develop specifically for or test as part of their quality assurance review touchscreen input on Chromebooks or Windows devices.
  • Questar only develops for and tests as part of their quality assurance review touchscreen input on supported iPads.
