The Widefield School District strived to provide a uniform online testing environment for all students due to the implementation of the Common Core State Standards Initiative. In addition, the district's involvement with the Partnership for Assessment for College and Careers as well as the Colorado Measures of Academic Success further drove the need for reliable online testing processes. Uniformity, reliability, stability, and security for workstations were the challenges faced by the Widefield School District.
The Widefield School District deployed Deep Freeze to 'Freeze' the computers in their pristine state. This solved the issues with uniformity, reliability, stability, and security since the computers would return to their pristine state with a simple reboot and remove unwanted changed. Faronics Anti-Virus was deployed to provide an additional layer of security and ensure a secure online testing environment.
