The American Institutes for Research (AIR) and Google are collaborating to allow students to use the Chromebook when taking major statewide tests.

AIR is currently partnering with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (Smarter Balanced), a state-led consortium developing next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. AIR is developing an open-source testing platform for delivering the Consortium’s online, computer-adaptive summative and interim assessments to students.

Chromebooks can be used to deliver the Smarter Balanced tests in a secure mode that ensures that students cannot copy the test questions or search the Internet for answers. 

AIR, a not-for-profit organization, provides academic assessments and accessible, standards-based statewide adaptive testing services.
