  • Student Testing on Chrome OSv72

    The latest version of the Chrome v72 is now supported for student testing. If your district already updated to Chrome v72, please ensure your district has the newest release (72.0.3626.117) prior to testing. You may also continue to test on Chrome v67-71.

    Note: Earlier this month, American Institutes for Research (AIR) asked districts to hold off on updating Chrome browsers to v72 due to some errors that were being received when using this version. This issue has been resolved with the newest release (72.0.3626.117).
