  • Students taking the Alternate Assessment who do not have a paper-pencil accommodation should be completing their tests in the Student Interface (or Secure Browser). The Data Entry Interface (or DEI) should only be accessed by Teachers who have students with a paper-pencil accommodation. Once the student completes their paper-pencil test, the Teacher will transcribe the student’s responses into the DEI and submit the test. Alternate Assessments should not be completed on both of these sites.
