  • iOS/MacOS updates and the AIR Secure Browser:

    iOS 11 and MacOS 10.13 High Sierra were recently released and are currently undergoing compatibility testing with the AIR Secure Browser. Support is anticipated within 90 days of the OS release dates; in the meantime, updating to these versions is discouraged.

    DDOE has approved use of iOS 11 for interim Smarter testing, and proctored practice tests, however, proctors of non-managed iPad test sessions must monitor the student’s screens to ensure that proper testing procedure is being followed.  Upgrading iPads to iOS 11.1, when released, will resolve security concerns.
