    The issue with the audio playback tool for listening stimuli that impacted Windows devices has been corrected for the Smarter Balanced ELA CAT assessments. AIR and OSPI apologize about the inconvenience this problem has caused.

    If you have students who used a Windows device and they were impacted by this issue, please work through your DC or DA to submit an appeal to Re-Open a Current Test Segment. Add the following text in the comment box, “Due to the Audio issue on ELA test this student needs access to complete their testing opportunity.” AIR will process the appeal on the back end to open the test opportunity for the student.
