Set Up Test Day Toolkit for SAT Suite

Complete the steps below when you get an email telling you Test Day Toolkit is ready for your next SAT Suite of Assessments in-school testing window. These instructions apply to administrations of SAT School Day and PSAT-related assessments only.

Instructions

  1. Sign in to Test Day Toolkit with your College Board account.

    • Returning users can go to testday.collegeboard.org.
    • If it’s your first time using Test Day Toolkit, click the link in the access email we send you and follow the onscreen instructions.
  2. Create your staff list.

    • Navigate to the Staff page.
    • Add contact details for your proctors and other test day staff.
    • Timesaver: If you’ve used the toolkit before, select returning staff from your staff list.
    • We’ll send access emails to all staff and use the contact details you provide for 2-step verification.
    • As part of 2-step verification, we send staff a code that expires after 3 minutes. Mobile numbers make first-time access easier.
  3. Review your roster for missing students or incorrect data.

    • Navigate to the All Students page to view your roster.
    • Your Test Day Toolkit roster will list only students registered in the SAT Suite Ordering and Registration (SSOR) system.
    • Use SSOR to add more students or correct accommodations and personal information.
    • Students won’t be listed in Test Day Toolkit until they’re registered in SSOR.
  4. Add testing rooms.

    • Navigate to All Rooms
    • Give each room a seating capacity and a name.
    • Important: If you’re testing in the same physical room multiple times, you must add a room in Test Day Toolkit for each session to create unique student rosters.
    • If any students have accommodations that require testing over multiple days, add a separate room in Test Day Toolkit for each day of testing, even if you plan to use the same space. Get complete instructions in the Accommodations Guide.
    • To give each room a unique name, add the month and day after the room name. If necessary, add the time, too, using 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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 Manual 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.
    • Tip: After you assign students to rooms, you can export room assignments by navigating to Bluebook Sign-In Tickets and Data Export.
  7. 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.
  8. Assign staff to roles and rooms.

    • Assign each proctor to a room.
    • Proctors can be assigned to only 1 room at a time. If someone is proctoring multiple times during the testing window, assign them to a new room after each session. 
    • Assign hall and room monitors as needed to meet required staffing ratios.
    • Assign 1 or more technology monitors by selecting Technology coordinator
    • Don’t assign technology or hall monitors to a room.
  9. When you’re ready, print student sign-in tickets.

    • Click Bluebook Sign-In Tickets and Data Export on the Test Day Toolkit homepage.
    • On the Print Tickets tab, select a print option. Choose between alphabetical or by room (if students are assigned to rooms in the toolkit).
    • Click Print Tickets.
