The BMS Tech Center recommends the steps in this document to make sure that everyone's iPad is running properly for MCAS (and for school!) We appreciate parents/guardians checking in with their children to make sure this happens or if they need assistance.
  • Check storage - you should have 2GB available!
  • Delete any unused photos, videos, apps.
  • Make sure automatic updates are turned on
  • Install updates manually if need be
  • Soft restart the day of testing
  • Make sure TestNav app is installed on iPad (if not, download from Self Service)
  • Fully charged
8th grade students, please make sure you back up any pictures, movies, etc. since you will be turning in your iPad in June.

Please note, these steps can be followed throughout the school year to ensure your device is always running optimally!
