To put a student into test mode, sign into cowriter.com as an educator or administrator, go to Manage Students, select one or more students, click the Lock icon, then select the test the students will be taking from the dropdown and click Turn On.

Placing Co:Writer's Chrome App into Test mode for ILEARN, IREAD, or I AM* disables all the features that are NOT allowed as an accommodation within the Chrome App as explained in the Accessibility and Accommodations Guidance  https://www.doe.in.gov/sites/default/files/assessment/accessibility-and-accommodations-guidance-1819-final-051118.pdf
 (Page 31 for a Word Processor and 18 for Speech-to-Text and Text to Speech).

Co:Writer's Chrome Extension will also share these test settings when turned on. The extension can then be used in compliance with the test as long as the online word processor also complies with the requirements.  

While in Test mode for ILEARN, IREAD, or I AM, Co:Writer will disable Word Prediction, spelling, and grammar (Co:Writer does not include a dictionary or thesaurus).  Speech-to-Text and Text to Speech are available.  

No writings are ever sent or communicated to a server or allowed to be shared anywhere outside of the local app/client computer. Co:Writer permanently and irretrievably deletes all student writing from the app/client computer immediately when a student signs out.
