Completing the Technical Readiness Process

The Technical Readiness tab allows you to: 

  • review all the Administration Checklist items 
  • check the completed items 
  • track your progress 

When both the Before the Assessment Window section of the the administration checklist and the school board IT checklist are completed, a green box confirming the assessment can be administered will be displayed. 

Teachers can administer the assessment only once these checklists are completed.
