2015 NWEA Important Information

The NWEA window is open from Wednesday, 9/16 to 9/30. Please read this very important information to make certain you're not caught off guard when testing begins. 
 
As most of you know, the students must access the test via a Lockdown browser that keeps them from using other apps while testing. Unfortunately, the 7th & 8th grade devices do not have the lockdown browser installed or available to them in Self Service because of the issue we are having with VPP and appleid accounts.  So this means that all 7th & 8th grade students will need to download and install the software ASAP in order for testing to occur.
To that end... if you click here, you will download instructions that describe how to download and install the NWEA Lockdown Browser. If you have any questions about this please don't hesitate to ask. 
 
6th grade teams - the Lockdown Browser is already installed on your student devices in the Applications folder.
 
TEACHERS - You must log into your NWEA accounts and change your password PRIOR to testing beginning.
You should have received a message from MAP-AutoResponder containing your username (your email
address) and a temporary password. If you haven't done this and cannot find the original email, please contact Micah or Ryan so that a temporary password can be emailed out to you ASAP.
