Certification Window

Reminder: The certification test window is November 15 - December 7, 2018. The purpose of this test is to allow local students, schools, and LEAs to go through the steps necessary for operational testing. This should be treated as a mock operational test. The actual test content will be practice test items to help familiarize the students with the new testing platform.

  • Technology Coordinators must install the HSA Kiosks and TestMonitor (if it is deemed necessary) before the beginning of the certification test window November 15 – December 7.

Online Practice Tests

The online practice tests are live via the HSA Kiosk and the Student Practice test login.

Usernames and passwords to the 2019 HSA practice tests are as follows:

First Pre-ID Window

The First Pre-ID Window is closed. The enrollments loaded during this Pre-ID window will automatically order your administration manuals and paper test materials. For any enrollments loaded after this time, you will need to order materials through the Additional Materials application.

  • The second Pre-ID window will be December 12 – 19, 2018. During this window you will be able to do your bulk additional updates to enrollments and/or accommodations. Paper materials will not be automatically ordered from records loaded during this time.
