  1. Tests will be available at 7:00 am every day of the CBT field testing window.
    • We will not be posting to “CBT Today” every day, but we will post occasionally.
      • We will not be sending out CBT Listserv messages every day, but I will send one this morning with details about how NYSED and Questar will help with CBT Field Testing administration.
  2. The CBT SAFT Proctor Webinar video and slides are posted: https://cbtsupport.nysed.gov/hc/en-us/articles/360028207132.
    • I will be sending this article/link out in the CBT listserv message this morning.
  3. The issue with CBT Field testing ELA test form assignment and availability of student login tickets has been fixed by Questar: https://cbtsupport.nysed.gov/hc/en-us/articles/360028134532.
  4. Schools new to CBT Field Testing should use the following two articles to get started:
  5. We will continue to encourage schools to contact Questar for assistance during CBT Field Testing—we want schools to have someone appointed to share their CBT field testing experience with Questar after administering the computer-based field tests in the school:
    • If the Secure Browser will not launch, we want someone from the school to call Questar to report this issue.
    • If students cannot log into the Secure Browser, we want someone from the school to call Questar to report this issue.
    • If students encounter technical difficulties, such as with downloading the test or submitting the test, we want someone to call Questar.
    • If students see code on-screen instead of mathematical expressions or have any other odd experience within the computer-based field test, we want someone from the school to call Questar to report the issue.
    • While we may not triage and solve the issue as we do with operational testing, we do want a report of any technical issues experienced by students during CBT field testing.
