7 Internet/Network Requirements

Internet/Network Requirements

A constant, stable, high-speed Internet connection is required for the test. The average response time for each assessment depends on the reliability and speed of your school’s Internet connection. Content filters, firewalls, and proxy servers must be configured to allow testing. Recommend a minimum of 20 kbps for each student testing, but this will likely spike at startup time.

Technology Requirements | 7

January 2014

8 Internet/Network Requirements

Internet/Network Requirements

Make sure that you have enough Wireless Access Points to support the number of students testing at any given time. Wireless traffic must use encryption. WPA2 and AES standards are strongly recommended. Try out the Network Diagnostic Tool, available at https://air.tds.airast.org/student/Pages/LoginShell.aspx?section=sectionDiagnostics&c=SBAC_PT.

17 What is the Secure Browser

What is the Secure Browser

All Field Test secure browsers (Windows, Mac, Android, Chromebook, iOS and Linux) are available on the Smarter Balanced Portal Web page (http://sbac.portal.airast.org/browsers/). Need to uninstall Pilot Test version of browser, if previously installed. If you have a secure browser for your state testing, no need to uninstall it.

18 When Should the Secure Browser Be Installed

When Should the Secure Browser Be Installed

Install the Secure Browser as soon as possible. This gives stakeholders time to become familiar with the software, testing interface, etc. The practice test can be accessed by anyone without installing any special software at https://sbacpt.tds.airast.org/student/. The practice test can also be accessed via the secure browser. Gives students a preview of the locked-down testing experience. Helps determine if network resources are sufficient for testing.
