Do you have questions about how to administer any of the NRS-approved assessments to your students this fall? Are you wondering how to manage remote testing?

Staff from the Center for Educational Assessment at UMass Amherst are available for drop-in virtual help sessions to help navigate new testing procedures under remote and physically distant in person conditions. No structured PowerPoints or canned presentations here - just you, your colleagues in the field, and the psychometricians talking about testing.


These help sessions are open to all and will be recorded. The questions we discuss, along with answers, will also be posted online on the ACLS Test Help Blog to help others who may be running into similar issues.

These sessions will be held on three Fridays in September: 

September 11 from 9 - 10 am 

September 18 from 9 - 10 am

September 25 from 9 - 10 am

The link and password to join any and all of the drop-in sessions is below. It will not change from session to session.

Meeting ID: 921 9010 3740

Passcode: 988521

Please note: You can attend one or all of the sessions.  

Questions? Please reach out to April Zenisky or Jenn Lewis at UMass at anytime. 


Program staff should review the guidance from ACLS ( and the test-specific guidelines on the ACLS Test Help Blog (, and come prepared with questions.
