TETN & Webinars Schedule

IMPORTANT UPDATE: In response to the extension of the spring 2021 STAAR online administrations from two weeks to five, and the implications this change will have on scoring and reporting, ETS will host four live training sessions of the Online Testing Preparation for Spring 2021 webinar in February and March to provide multiple opportunities for district and campus personnel to listen and ask questions. The content presented in each session will remain the same and will follow standard ETS webinar format.
 
To accommodate this change, ETS will not have spring versions of the Overview of the STAAR Online Testing Platform and the Technology Staff Network Configuration, Secure Browser Installation, and Device Set Up webinars because there are no scheduled updates to the secure browser application and no new personal needs and preferences (PNPs). Districts can continue to access the recordings of the webinars from the fall in the District and Campus Coordinator Resources on the 2020–2021 Summative Webinar Recordings (Fall) webpage.
