  • August 3, 2017 – Update on Chromebooks and ELPA21 testing

    AIR and ELPA21 support testing on Chrome OS 59 and districts can update to Chrome OS 59 at this time for ELPA21 testing.  AIR is continuing to test Chrome OS 60.  Internal testing by AIR indicates that speaking response recordings are garbled when recorded on Acer 13 Chromebooks with the Chrome OS 60 operating system. There is no issue with speaking recording on Acer 13 Chromebooks with Chrome OS 59. If you are using Acer 13 Chromebooks in your district it is strongly recommended that you not update them to Chrome OS 60 when it is released soon. AIR and ELPA21 will continue to support Chrome OS 59.
