CAASPP and ELPAC: New Screen Share Feature Available for Remote Testing!
CAASPP and ELPAC email update, April 12, 2021.
Dear LEA CAASPP Coordinator or LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
There's a new testing feature available to assist you with your remote administration of the spring assessments! The screen share feature allows test administrators or test examiners to request a student's permission to view the student's screen during a test session. The student can still interact with the test and use embedded accessibility resources while the test administrator or test examiner is viewing the student's screen; and the test administrator or test examiner can still communicate with the student through the chat or a call while the screen sharing is active. The screen share feature is now available in the Test Administrator Interface by selecting the [Screen Share] icon on the communication widget.
Watch the How to Use the Screen Sharing Feature video to view a demonstration of this new feature, or read the description of screen share on the Remote Testing Features web page. Share this information with other staff who may find this new feature useful in their work with students.
Questions regarding remote testing features or the 2020–21 CAASPP or ELPAC administration should be directed to CalTAC, by phone at 800-955-2954 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
