  • Student Testing on Chrome OSv72

    The latest version of the Chrome v72 is now supported for student testing. If your district already updated to Chrome v72, please ensure your district has the newest release (72.0.3626.117) prior to testing. You may also continue to test on Chrome v67-71.

    Note: Earlier this month, American Institutes for Research (AIR) asked districts to hold off on updating Chrome browsers to v72 due to some errors that were being received when using this version. This issue has been resolved with the newest release (72.0.3626.117).

  • AIR has completed the review of macOS 10.14 and determined a new secure browser is required to support this new operating system. Additionally, a security issue has been discovered for macOS 10.13. To address these issues, AIR has created and posted a newly updated version of the secure browser for macOS which is available for download on the Secure Browsers page. Previous versions of the secure browser for macOS will no longer function after December 31, 2018. All macOS devices (10.9 to 10.14)  are required to have the new secure browser installed by the end of the year in order to test in the new year.
