What is happening?
The TestNav Hardware Support Policy aligns TestNav system requirements with manufacturer-supported operating systems (OSs) and devices. Districts should review the policy annually to plan purchasing for the next school year.
This best practice ensures that all district personnel and students experience efficient and reliable testing sessions.
What does this mean?
Technology personnel should evaluate manufacturer support to determine whether they should purchase new devices for each upcoming school year. Using the TestNav Support Policy, districts can deduce upcoming support for the 2020-21 school year to be the following:
|OS||Supported Versions (2020-2021)|
10.13, 10.14, 10.15
Chrome OS 84
Windows 10, version 1803
Windows 10, version 1809
Windows 10, version 1903
Windows 10, version 1909
Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit)
|Android (pending resolution with Google)|
What do I need to do (and how do I do it)?
District personnel should familiarize themselves with this policy to purchase and prepare devices every school year.
You can also find available details for the upcoming school year in the Upcoming Support Changes section of TestNav System Requirements.
