Schools have a seven-week window during which they will have the opportunity to administer the WY-ALT: March 2 – April 23, 2021. This window was chosen to provide schools ample time to assess all eligible students at their own pace. There are no time restrictions inherent to the assessment itself, and students may stop and resume a test at any point within the test window.
The test is provided online and administered one-on-one, Test Administrator (TA) to student. The student will take the WY-ALT using a device (computer or tablet) with the Secure Browser installed.
The TA will use a separate device (computer or tablet) to start and monitor the test session via the Test Administrator Interface. Throughout test administration, the TA can assist the student in navigating and entering responses.
