Important Details Regarding NWEAs at MTA

  • If all of the students in your testing session have finished the test prior to the end of the testing session, they are to remain quiet and in your room until the time the session ends has come so as not to disturb those students who are finishing their testing.

  • Any technical difficulties, call the learning commons and they will contact support for you.

  • If the exam freezes on a student laptop, the proctor should suspend the test from their device, then have the student shut down their device, restart it, and then go through the process of entering the test again.

  • Students should be given scrap paper for use during the test.
