Test Scoring team prepares 30 districts for Computer-Based Field Testing
Thirty school districts in the CNYRIC’s region have elected to administer Computer-Based Field Testing  (CBT) for the upcoming ELA and Mathematics assessments.  This year districts have the option of using computers for these statewide exams (Science will continue in the same format as in past years). The New York State Education Department (NYSED) plans to transition to exclusive CBT by 2020.

How will CBT work?
Each participating district will administer field tests in a school for an entire grade within one content area. CBT sessions will be conducted over a three-week time period. Nextera, a test administration system developed by Questar Assessment, Inc., will be accessible on a variety of devices including laptops, tablets, Chromebooks, Macs, and PCs.  In advance of CBT administration, student data will be uploaded and classes will be created.  Test coordinators will have the ability to monitor test sessions through Nextera by assessment or  by class.

As paper-based testing phases out, the CNYRIC’s test scoring team will serve as an excellent resource for school districts. Continue to explore the test scoring section of www.cnyric.org for up-to-date information regarding CBT.
