Simulation Today

Today is the first day of the two CBT Simulations that we are organizing throughout the state this winter. The CBT Simulations represent a low-stakes testing experience where schools can conduct an operational CBT "dry run" to help streamline CBT operations within their schools. 

The practice tests should not take longer than 40 minutes or a regular class period. Schools can determine how much time to devote to this exercise for students to become familiar with the CBT platform. If students do not complete their practice test in the allotted time, they can simply submit the test to complete the simulation. The goal of the simulation is for students to gain experience with launching the Questar Secure Browser, logging into a computer-based test, and submitting a computer-based test. 

If you encounter any difficulties, you can call Questar Customer Service, as you would during an operational CBT day:
