Installing NWEA Testing Software
In preparation for the NWEA testing, the students need to download and install the software from Self Service. We have introduced this program to them during roll out, but here are directions on where to find it. Please make sure that your students do it as soon as possible that way they have it ready to go before the testing period.
- Click on the magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner of the screen (called Spotlight). Type in Self Service and open the application. (If your student does not see self service yet, it is likely because they missed a step during the set up. It should populate to their computer shortly.)
- Once in Self Service, click on the "Web" category on the right hand side.
- Select the install button next to "Install NWEAlockdownbrowser". It should download and install automatically for you.
- You can now find the software via the "Applications" category in the finder window or via "Launchpad" in the toolbar (the icon looks like a rocket skip).
Here is a screencast to walk you through these steps as well.
