Establish an appropriate setting and remove or cover any unauthorized visual aids. Prepare necessary forms to collect required administration information. Prepare Security Log(s) to be used in testing room. Make copies of the Do Not Disturb sign and Electronic Devices sign to post prior to testing. Prepare a seating chart to be used in your testing room. 3

Become familiar with accommodations specified on students IEPs or Section 504 plans. Obtain your test group codes. CBT: Ensure that you are familiar with how to open TestNav or TestHear to the login screen with the correct URL for each student computer prior to testing (see instructions in operational scripts). 4

5 Test Administrator: Before Testing CBT: Conduct Practice Test (ePAT) ALL students MUST complete an ePAT to learn how to use the computer- based system. Even students who participated in a previous computer-based test MUST complete the appropriate ePAT(s) prior to this administration. Students who will take any accommodated computer-based form must take the corresponding TestHear ePAT. Ensure that the following items have been downloaded to each computer that will be used for a practice test. For TestNav: the ePAT Launcher and appropriate test content (Algebra 1 EOC). For TestHear: the accommodated ePAT, which includes the launcher and the test content. ePAT scripts provided in the Winter EOC Manual and under the Resources tab at 5

Start TestNav or TestHear, type in the correct URL, and open each student workstation to the student login screen. Ensure that you have a way to contact the technology coordinator or school coordinator during testing without leaving the room unattended. Test Sessions have a unique six-digit test code (password) that will be printed on the Student Authorization Tickets and Session Roster. Test Code (password) is used to access the test. Test Group Code (4-digits) is used to identify groups of students tested together. 6
