Statewide Readiness Test - this Wednesday

From Becca:


The Statewide Readiness Test for ILEARN will be held on Wednesday, January 23rd at 10:00 AM (weather make-up day on Monday, January 28th at 10:00 AM). The purpose of the Readiness Test is to stress our technology infrastructure, check student connectivity, and for AIR to stress their systems.


All staff who will be assessing students during real testing in the spring will need to access the ILEARN Module for Week 16 no later than Tuesday afternoon for important updates related to their participation in this event. Please note that you are not using the GUEST sign-on feature and should have students sign-in using their credentials and utilize a session code. Also, note that students are going to the Repository Items and not entering a Practice Test. Step by step directions are available in the Canvas module. Each Test Administrator (teacher) should be familiar with the directions prior to Wednesday.


As part of the module, you will have a check-in form which will serve as your reporting tool for problems encountered during the test. Since all students should have already logged in several times to the AIR system, at this point, detailed data will not be collected regarding typical log-in problems such as apps or program running in the background, machines without the testing client, and students without log-in codes. We will collect data regarding crashing, delays, inability to connect to AIR, and other problems that prevent students from participating.


Again, please make sure that you have read the information in the Canvas module no later than Tuesday afternoon (if this pertains to you).
