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.

Good Monday morning!

I wanted to know if any of you have used or planned for the Chromebook option for the WIDA ELLs 2.0 testing this year.  In the past we have used local system (Mac OS) for "server"/TSM and local systems (Mac OS) for "testers".  Looks like the Chromebook option (for "testers") might be handy...is it?

Thoughts?  Challenges?  Successes?

Keith
