This Quick Reference Guide has been updated for the 2020-21 school year.
Students who will be taking the operational CBT Grades 3-8 math tests in a language other than English may set their keyboard to an alternate language to allow logging in and typing responses in their native language (such as Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, or Spanish). The Questar Secure Browser will allow students to test with an alternate language keyboard if using an iPad, Mac, or Windows testing device.
Students must set the alternate language on their testing device prior to opening the Questar Secure Browser to begin testing. Additionally, students will be able to access the test session using a numeric password and then be able to type into the constructed response boxes (the Equation Editor) using their alternate language keyboard without any user toggling. The device's alternate language keyboard persists for the student in the chosen alternate language.
Important: Chromebooks do not allow the selection of an alternate language keyboard in conjunction with the Questar Secure Browser.
Please find attached the documentation from Questar for setting alternate language keyboards for iPad, Mac, and Windows 10 testing devices.
