What are the technology requirements for viewing the Smarter Balanced sample items and tasks?

posted Oct 9, 2012, 5:49 AM by lucille.chicoine@state.vt.us

The sample items and performance tasks are compatible with desktop and laptop computers with the following Internet browsers:

  • Firefox 3.6 or newer
  • Internet Explorer 8 or newer
  • Chrome 18 or newer
  • Safari 4.1 or newer

In addition, Android and iPad tablets with 9.5-inch screens (10-inch class) or larger are supported with the following Internet browsers:

  • Chrome 18 or newer (Android)
  • Safari 4.1 or newer (iPad)
It is important to note that these specifications do not reflect the minimum technology requirements for the operational Smarter Balanced assessment system in the 2014-15 school year.
