Yes, NYSED and Questar are releasing the much-anticipated Equation Editor Drawing Tool as a new feature for the spring 2018 CBT Stand-Alone Field Testing (SAFT) administration.
We are excited to announce that the Drawing Tool will be available to our schools on Monday, May 14, 2018 within the publicly available Question Sampler practice tests. We will begin releasing support materials with more details about the features and functionality of the Drawing Tool on Friday, May 11, 2018 and also announce in the CBT Listserv weekly message.
The drawing tool will be available in all Equation Editor "Show your work" response boxes and will function on all student testing devices (iPad, Windows, Mac, and Chromebooks). We will also provide a survey to schools participating in CBT math field testing so that we can gather more information directly from administrators, teachers, and their students to improve the tool for next year's operational CBT administration.
