|Secure Browser Support Plan for 2013-14 Now Available|
The 2013-14 Secure Browser Support Plan is now available on the OAKS Portal. This Secure Browser Support Plan establishes clear guidance to provide consistency and allow districts to anticipate which operating systems (OS) AIR’s secure browsers will support. This document is to help schools and districts manage support requirements and allow for both product and information technology planning in organizations based on knowledge of the support timelines. This plan also helps leverage advantages that are available through emerging technologies which are otherwise not possible, while also continuing to support legacy platforms. The support statuses included in this plan are consistent with the anticipated statuses communicated in the 2012-2013 plan.
Please note that, new for 2013-14, OAKS testing will be supported on netbooks and tablets. However, support for these devices will be limited, and will not include support for the computer-based read-aloud or for ELPA testing. In addition, ODE is in the process of developing more detailed guidance around the use of an external keyboard if administering the Writing Assessment on a tablet.
