NWEA released a kiosk app named MAP Chromebook Testing App in July 2015. Kiosk apps are specially deployed and run independent of user accounts on the Chromebook.

The instructions to deploy this app have been adapted from Google's guide for Use Chromebooks for Student Assessment. You can see the app on the Chrome Web Store here: MAP Chromebook Testing App.

These steps will install the app across all Chromebooks in your organizational unit, and will allow students to see a menu of kiosk apps in the system tray on the login screen. The student can then select the app to begin testing.

To deploy the MAP Chromebook Testing App to managed devices:

See below if you do not use the Google Admin tools to manage your Chromebook devices.
