Computer Based Test Requirements for State Tests

1:1 Devices and Testing

Students must come to computer based tests with their 1:1 or BYOT device charged and ready to use to test. PERT does not require anything specific to be installed. For the FAST (ELA 9 and 10) and EOC tests (Biology, US History, Algebra, and Geometry), you must have the secure browser installed. Please follow these directions: 

For Personal BYOT Laptops

For a personal device that is not owned by the school, visit fsassessments.org/secure-browsers.html and install the browser. You will see the icon on your screen that will allow you to login once it is installed. If you are unable to install the testing software on your device for any reason, you will need to check out a 1:1 device in advance of testing. 

For School 1:1 Laptops
