The assessment requires a connection that does not go below 80 Kbps per device. For optimal functioning, an average of 2 Mbps or greater is recommended.
IT teams are responsible for determining and reporting the bandwidth and connectivity at the schools in their board. The following are questions you may want to ask technical staff handling set-up at the schools:
- How are the computers connected to the Internet? Are they wired or do they use Wi-Fi?
- What is the bandwidth available to each device that will be used in the assessment?
