The WIDA MODEL Student Browser was developed by MetriTech, Inc. (MetriTech) for the World-class Instructional Design and Assessment Consortium (WIDA).
The WIDA MODEL Student Browser is a custom application that provides users access to MetriTech’s test delivery platform, specifically to access WIDA MODEL Online student tests via selected tablets, desktops, and laptop computers.
This application is not designed to collect personal information from users.
Inquiries, comments, and customer service requests may be submitted via email or by telephone (see Contact Us below).
The WIDA MODEL Student Browser application is not designed for the collection of personal information. It is used by students to gain access to one WIDA MODEL Online domain test at a time.
Access to one specific WIDA MODEL Online domain test, through the initial login screen, requires a user to type in a unique temporary Student Login ID and a unique temporary Test Session ID. Both of these IDs are created dynamically through MetriTech’s testing platform, are provided to users by teachers and school administrators from the WIDA MODEL Online web site (https://wida-model.metritechtesting.com), and are used only once by a student.
After login, the user’s name is displayed at the top of each screen of the test. This name information is entered by teachers or school administrators at the WIDA MODEL Online website.
Access to a test requires a user to type in login credentials for one specific domain test. MetriTech does not retain any of the information the user enters into the login fields, but does collect information about the device and operating system used and domain test accessed. MetriTech uses this information only to assist with customer service requests and issue discovery/resolution. MetriTech may provide this information to schools and school districts upon request to help determine testing status.
This App is designed to provide access to secure tests and not for collecting personal information. Although this application offers access to tests for students under the age of thirteen, this App is intended to supply these tests without using any personally identifiable information from students. The login screen does not require student first or last name.
If personal information is sent to MetriTech’s customer service email address for this App, MetriTech will exercise reasonable precautions to protect it from unauthorized use, access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. These precautions include appropriate physical, electronic, and management procedures.
