Questar advises the Nextera systems are working well this morning and students will have a good testing experience in New York State today. Schools across the state reported a good testing experience for their students again yesterday.
Please note that we will continue to advise our schools directly if any CBT issues need your attention. Please be sure to review the Secure Browser Updates content section on CBT Support each morning to stay informed about current operational CBT information.
Below are some CBT Support articles that you may want to review again this morning:
- Best Practice: Reboot Testing Devices as A First Step for Troubleshooting
- Touchscreen Computers with Flip Screens Are Not Supported by Questar in Tablet Mode
- Known Behavior: Styluses Versus Digital Pens
Protip of the Day: Double-Check that you are providing the correct session-specific Access Code to Proctors on Session 1 and Session 2 testing days. Consider using a color system for test session Access Code index cards to help you provide the correct day's session Access Code to Proctors. If you are providing CBT information sheets instead of using index cards in your Secure Test Materials packets, then consider using different colored paper for printing Session 1 and Session 2 CBT information.
If you have a helpful tip about how you organize your CBT Secure Test Materials packets for your Proctors, please share it with us!
We hear from many principals that using a color system for CBT test session information helps them with organization and ensuring they are providing the correct test session information on the correct day. The color system can help!
