Hi Keith:
We have been using the chromebooks with students for ACCESS Testing since
the testing went online- the Access app is accessible in a fashion similar
to the SBAC secure browser which is helpful especially when students might
not already be using chromebooks on a regular basis. The chromebooks make
testing in small groups and in a variety of locations much easier.

Making sure your headsets with microphones are compatible and available is
a challenge. Would definitely recommend teachers and students practice with
Access demos and practice tests on chromebooks prior to actual testing. For
our younger students, having mice available can be helpful, also if just
learning how to use the track pad.
