Smarter Balanced Assessment Bandwidth Check Instructions

Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 2:03 pm

Are you looking for an easy way to determine the bandwidth available in your school for implementing the SBAC assessments in 2014-15?  The SBAC Bandwidth Check allows users to go to the bandwidth checker, choose a test (mathematics or English language arts), and then enter the number of students who will be testing at one time. It can be run using modern versions of Mozilla Firefox on computers with Windows, OS X, or Linux operating systems; Safari on tablets using the iOS operating system; and Chrome on tablets using the Android operating system. The bandwidth checker cannot be accessed using Internet Explorer. 

Visit the links provided here or go the OPI TRT Web page for more information about Technology Readiness for SBAC.
