Students should be very familiar and comfortable with the testing engine prior to the operational administration. OTTs and Student Demos are required for all students testing online.
Districts need to register schools that will be testing online by December 16, 2011.
Online testing will be for the entire grade level in one or more subjects. As an example all 7th graders at a school will either be taking the reading test online or with paper/pencil, and (independently of that) all 7th graders at that school will be taking the math test online or with paper/pencil.
Even with the whole grade level testing online, there may be a few students using a test booklet if required by their IEP.
