We had issues with 7th grade using Dell Win 7 devices, 1/3 of all the 7th grade classes using identical devices with identical software/browser versions could not access a test (spinning circle and test never loads). They could log in and use Chromebooks with no issues. After extensive troubleshooting on our end the helpdesk was able to replicate the issue and it was a problem with one of the tests. Provide them with the test ID#s and affected student ID#s and they can see which tests are having issues.

I was wondering if anyone else has begun SBAC testing on MacBook Airs this year.  We have had a number of issues this year.

We are currently working with the SBAC help desk to figure out why some of our 7/8 students can't log into the PT test.  They can move over to other MacBooks that work for other students and still have issues.  If they move to a Chromebook they have no issues logging in.  These students were able to take other tests earlier in the week on the same devices with no issues.

I will let you know what we find out.  Just wondering if others using MacBooks this year were having any issues.
