Add testing rooms. Important: If you’re reusing rooms within the testing window, pay close attention to the special instructions below.
Navigate to All Rooms.
Give each room a seating capacity and a name.
If you’re testing in the same room multiple times, you must add a room in Test Day Toolkit for each session to create unique student rosters.
Use this naming convention for rooms you’re reusing: Add the month and day after the room name. If necessary, add the time, too. Use letters and numbers only. For example, create rooms called “Cafeteria Oct 6 AM” and “Cafeteria Oct 6 PM” if you’re using the cafeteria to test one group in the morning and another group in the afternoon.
Recommended: Add a late room.
If possible, reserve a room for students who arrive at their assigned room after the proctor reads the script.
Note: If you preassign students to rooms in Test Day Toolkit, you or your staff will need to reassign late students before they enter a room code.
Optional: Assign students to rooms.
On the All Students page, filter or sort your roster by testing group.
Select multiple students and use the Action drop-down menu to move them to rooms in bulk.
The Test Coordinator Test Day Guide and the Accommodations Guide have more information about testing groups and room assignments.
To test students in different testing groups in the same room, skip this step and simply instruct students to sit in the selected room. The toolkit will create a room roster on test day when students enter the room code their proctor gives them.
Check room assignments of students approved for small-group testing.
Look in the Accommodations column on your roster for students approved for small-group testing.
If any student approved for small-group testing is assigned to a room with more than 15 seats, move them to a smaller room.
Move each student approved for one-to-one testing to their own room.
Every student who takes a PSAT-related assessment needs their own sign-in ticket to access Bluebook™. Each ticket includes unique credentials.
Students need sign-in tickets during the digital readiness check and on test day. They also use them to submit their answers later if they didn’t have an internet connection when they ran out of testing time.
If a student takes a full-length practice test for a PSAT-related assessment, they’ll use their sign-in ticket to access Bluebook and My Practice (where they can view their scores).
