Description: The article focuses on something about school district of Manatee County, including online testing for students, students’ accommodation, some services students may receive from the system.
We’re going to have a huge initiative in that area to be able to get books on two machines for students, I wish I could plan better, but you can’t, you have to be adaptive to the situations that are presented with you.
We’re doing a lot more with online testing in different ways to do online testing to present the tests, next year, they’re going to test and trying to test every student every two weeks to get them used to this feature.
We’re going to be planning something along those lines, it gets hard, unfortunately, an IT in our business to do tons of planning, I need this, you don’t always get what you want, you have to be ready to adapt and to keep up what file waves doing.
We’re able to adapt to that from the very beginning, we decided to put it on all the macs, when we run our imaging process, it’s in semantics during the imaging process, the machine can jump, download this file size.
It’s an integral piece, we don’t leave out, everybody was very skeptical, you do on the mac side, whether it is from the local teacher level to the administrative level.
I have a favorite feature, it saves us time, that’s what it is, six years ago, before file wave, we had hundreds of images, you couldn’t add software, it’s something that you don’t know.
If you have a machine that has a problem, we have the machine back, if there’s a problem in the morning, we’ve got all the machines back up, when you’re looking at 40 schools, that’s a huge impact, 5 wave.
We put the practice test ando, we put it the kiosk, it can be downloaded to whatever machine, they want to use, we push the state test out even to the adaptive test which is test here.
We push it to the windows machines with the proper whatever that accommodation the student might need, so it makes it very fast, very simple, gets the machine certified up, it allows us to let those machines run quickly and efficiently.
