This checklist has been updated for the 2023-24 school year.
The Statewide CBT Simulation Checklist is a handy resource to help your school plan for the Statewide CBT Simulation Period. For participation in the Statewide CBT Simulation, schools will need to use Nextera Admin for administration and the Questar Secure Browser for testing.
The Statewide CBT Simulation provides the opportunity for an organized simulation with other schools throughout the State participating in 2023-2024 operational CBT. The CBT Simulation offers the opportunity for school staff to evaluate the readiness of the school’s internal systems, hardware, and school testing procedures for CBT. Student answers will not be scored after the simulation test is submitted, but the responses are transmitted to the NWEA database. This allows the Questar Secure Browser to confirm connection to the NWEA database for the student’s testing device.
The following checklist is for your use and will help you to prepare staff and students in your school to participate in New York State’s CBT Simulation. You may retain this checklist for your use.
