Computer-Based Testing (CBT)
All NYS 3–8 Testing for Mathematics and ELA is scheduled to transition from Paper-based testing to Computer-Based Testing (CBT). As this transition progresses, the test scoring department will continue to support school districts with the implementation of this change by providing the needed professional development. Support will be provided for both the Nextera testing application provided by Questar for the NYS 3–8 Assessments, as well as for the KITE client and Educator Portal required for the administration of the NYSAA assessments through Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM). Nassau BOCES Testing Coordinators will provide this support for the preparation of student rosters, troubleshooting technical difficulties and data issues that are encountered, and coordination of scoring with other districts or with a scoring vendor. This service also includes the timely communication of critical information related to CBT through regional meetings, webinars, listservs, and direct communication with appropriate district personnel.
