Field Test Purpose
A field test is not designed to be a valid and
reliable measure of student achievement;
rather, it is designed to help the test developers
evaluate whether the tests, individual items,
and the technology platform work as intended
before the first operational administration.
— Deborah S. Delisle
U.S. Department of Education

Benefits of Field Test Participation
• Students will have hands-on experience with
the functionality of a computer-based
assessment.
• Teachers and administrators will gain valuable
exposure to administration logistics during a trial
run.
• Local educational agencies (LEAs) will benefit
from having learned where technology gaps
may exist, and then can fully prepare for
operational assessments.

• Stop an entire session; or
• Pause individual student tests.
• Users should exit or log out of the Test Administrator Interface
only after stopping the test session.
• If there is a technical issue (i.e. power outage or network
failure), students will be logged out and the test will
automatically be paused.
• Regardless of when or how users log out or navigate away
from the Test Administrator Interface, student data will NOT be
lost.
Note: If a test is paused for any reason or length of time, the
student must log in again to resume testing. Highlighted text and
item notes will not be preserved.

Pause Rules
• During the Non-Performance Task, if testing is paused for
more than 20 minutes, the student is:
•
•
•
Presented with the test page containing the test item he or she was last working
on (if page contains at least 1 unanswered item) OR
Presented with the next test page (if all items on the previous test page were
answered);
NOT permitted to review or change any test items on previous test pages.
• There is no pause rule for the Performance Task.

Even if a test is paused for 20 minutes or more, the student can return to the
current section and continue.
