  • Had students use the NWEA Secure Browser App on their Chromebooks to view sample test items and utilize the tools they will all have access to.

  • Possibly have students explore the MAP Growth 2+: Student Resources page so they are familiar with how the tests will work.

  • Downloaded and reviewed the Proctor Quick Start PDF so that you will know what to do before, during, and after testing.

Important Details Regarding NWEAs at MAMS

*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 Bethany (ex. 1227) and she 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 pencils and scrap paper for use during the test. Pencils can be obtained from the main office.

*Any requests for students to be opted out of the test should be referred to Megan.

*MOTOR BREAK and IN-SCHOOL BEHAVIORS - Please be mindful of the fact that other grades may be testing while your students have a motor or mask break. Motor breaks should be moved to the front of the building rather than the back. Additionally, please remember that there will be students testing throughout the day, throughout different parts of the building so we are asking that everyone instruct students to act accordingly - act as if there is testing occurring in all rooms throughout the entire day.

All Teachers

Limit network use during team time while other grades are testing in order to prevent overload of the network.
