NWEA Spring Testing -- Students on both campuses will begin their Spring NWEA standardized testing when we return from April vacation.  If your student will be taking the NWEA test at home, please make sure that you have done the preliminary work to ensure that their device works, prior to test day.

Students may use a chromebook, ipad, windows or mac laptop or desktop. Regardless of which device they use, they should use the CHROME browser. (If on an ipad, you will need to download the Chrome app)

 

Please set up Chrome correctly, using the following directions HERE. Once you have completed this setup, click on the link for NWEA Workstation Diagnostic HERE to verify that your device is set up and ready! On the day of the test, use the "test session login" HERE to get started.
