We have this same question. From the discussions in our district, a lot has yet to be revealed about the format of the testing. Will it be compatible with both Mac & PC? Will it require Flash? What will the network requirements be? It is unclear if schools can opt for the pen & paper test to avoid first year issues if they have potential technology and/or funding for it. I will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
If a school has iPads (which do not support Flash and never will) for their students and have moved away from netbooks/laptops/desktop labs, how are their students going to complete the online assessment implementation in SY2014-2015 on those new devices? Should this be a concern?-Brad
