  • Essay Length Concerns for the Interim Assessments

    Attention: Students writing essays for the interim assessments may have directions that state “Write a 1-3 paragraph explanation” or “Write a 2-3 paragraph explanation.” Please inform your students that they will not be penalized for writing more paragraphs than what is suggested. These directions will not be on the WVGSA, and we are working to remove them from the interim writing directions. We apologize for any confusion or concerns that these interim directions may have created.

  • Update to Chrome OS Secure Browser

    An update to the Chrome OS Secure Browser (version 3.1) will be posted in the Chrome web store for download next week. We have received some Help Desk cases indicating that student’s Chromebooks occasionally “go to sleep” when the student is in the middle of a test session but is taking a long time to read a passage or think about the response to a question. This update will over-ride the Chromebook’s settings and prevent a Chromebook from powering down and “going to sleep” while the student is taking a test. The updated Secure Browser will only prevent the Chromebook from powering down while the student is logged into a test. At all other times the Chromebook’s settings will determine when the Chromebook power down. Installation of this update is voluntary. Students will be able to continue to test on Chromebooks where it has not been installed.
