Changes this year: Corporation Test Coordinators (CTCs) and School Test Coordinators (STCs) can complete student transfers in bulk via Enrollment Transfer Export / Import feature. Student registration will be restricted in PearsonAccessnext so that students already existing in the system must be enrolled via the Enrollment Transfer process so they can be added to a new school. Students who are new to the state can be added locally. Pearson has created an Accessibility Features and Accommodations for Student Tests Report that will be available under Operational Reports in PearsonAccessnext. When a student logs in to a test, if the Response File Backup Location is not writable, the system will provide a 1002 error indicating the teacher or test proctor needs to be notified. NEW! Only STCs and CTCs can print Seal Codes and Student Test Tickets. 9
Changes this year: Student Test Ticket alignment has been improved for easier processing and cutting. Easily confused characters will be removed from student test tickets (i.e. zero, O, one, L and I). Pearson will load sample students and generate test sessions for practice tests. Starting in January: Calculator Accommodations will be assigned in the Personal Needs Profile section in PearsonAccessnext. On tests with multiple sections, users will have greater visibility into student section status via the Students in Sessions user interface. New link for submitting tickets to the help desk. 10

Student Transfer Manual Process: A student arrives at the new corporation. The CTC of the student’s new school corporation confirms with the student’s previous school which test section(s) the student has already completed (Examiner should also confirm with student before student takes test). The CTC collects student information, including STN, first and last name, and date of birth. Check with the previous school to confirm correct STN. The CTC goes into PearsonAccessnext and makes the transfer request using Student’s correct STN. The CTC of the student’s former school corporation approves or rejects the transfer request in PearsonAccessnext within one business day. The student test data transfers to the new corporation. The STC or CTC assigns the student to tests if needed, places the student in sessions, and resumes testing. If the previous corporation does not respond or approve within one business day, please contact Pearson to request assistance.
