Secure testing:

As of February 20, 2018, students are required to test using the NWEA Secure Testing app. The newest version of the NWEA Secure Testing app supports Automatic Assessment Configuration (AAC) which prevents the student from closing the app or navigating to other apps while the test is active. If you need students to test in the unsecured Safari browser instead, please contact NWEA Partner Support for assistance.

For more information on AAC, see Testing with iPad Automatic Assessment Configuration (AAC). The NWEA Secure Testing app also supports multiple device management (MDM) software, as well as single app mode (SAM), but does not support autonomous single app mode (ASAM). NWEA is unable to provide support for using MDM software or SAM.
