Proctor Caching setup?
- The deadline was Friday January 11th for proctor caching. It was not “extended”. This is a “hard” deadline, but we literally can’t enforce it until after the data pull that was scheduled to occur this morning at 1am.
- Jan 12th – 16th were clean up days for ACT. TA and OCF needed the time to cleanup schools that were not in compliance of the various tasks. One of the tasks during this cleanup time is to convert schools to paper testing that have online Manage Participation, but no TestNav configuration.
- · If a school completed a TestNav configuration by 1159pm yesterday (Jan 16th) (on their own or with ACT’s help), then they can test online. Any school that didn’t do this, or if they do this today or moving forward, then they cannot test online.
