It is recommended that classes follow a step-by-step process to ensure that everyone understands the online procedure.
Before beginning the test:
Give students the URL: www.nzceronline.org.nz and ensure everyone has been able to locate the site.
Distribute the Student Tokens face down. When you are ready, invite the students to log in and wait for your instructions.
Online Screen Options: Students can choose Online Options on the examples page. From here, they can choose options for:
Font – including dyslexic font
During the test: LINK TO INSTRUCTION DOC
Question Preview: At any time, students can see all of the questions at a glance and monitor their progress.
Yellow Progress Slide Bar: Once the student has begun the test, they can monitor their progress by following the yellow slide bar at the top of the screen.
Timing: There is an online timer to support students, however it will not stop the test at the time allowance. Following the time allowance for each test is crucial for the reliability of the scoring. Teachers must monitor and control the timing themselves.
Finishing the test:
Finishing: Students must click the 'Finish' button at the end of the test to ensure the data is saved to the online analysis reports. It is important to collect the Student Tokens and dispose of them to protect the data.
If a student is unable to complete their online assessment in one session, the student's token will remain active until the 'Finish' button is clicked. This means that students can log back in with their token and they will be able to continue from where they left off.
