On-Line Testing Procedures...
  1. 99% of the problems we are experiencing in Anderson County occur during the log-in process. 

  2. ALWAYS, make sure your students start testing with a Chomebook which has been freshly re-booted.

  3. ALWAYS, make sure the Chromebook is 100% charged before starting the test.

  4. The Questar app does not run nearly as fast as the other products we use in Anderson County.  We have learned… to ask the students to wait… maybe as long as 60-90 sec during the log-in process. 95% of the time this wait period will allow the student to pass through the login screen.  We are not at all happy with this situation and we are working with Questar to correct these delays which occur for about 10% of our students.  After the students pass through the log-in process… we have found that our students have very little issues with the actual test… which is great news.

  5. When asking your students to log-in to the Questar app… have ½ your student log-in… wait 3 minutes… and then ask the remaining ½ to log-in.

  6. If your students experience issues with the calculator, pause their test on your Questar Teacher Dashboard… and then have the students to re-login to the app.  In this situation, it should not be necessary to re-boot / re-start the Chromebook.

  7. All students are to test on a Chromebook.

  8. Teachers logging-in to their Questar Teacher Dashboard should use a Chromebook or PC Desktop.  

  9. Always use the browser Chrome when accessing your Teacher Dashboard on a PC.

  10. No Cell phone use of any kind during testing, both for students and /  or employees.

Please e-mail jwhitley@acs.ac when you have issues or concerns… the OOT is working with our testing coordinators every day to help make this testing experience manageable for you and your students.  I will keep you informed as we learn more.  Thank you for all your hard work.
