  • An issue was discovered within Google Chrome’s previous operating software version that resulted with a “login shell.alert.login error” message for students attempting to sign into the AIRSecureTest app on Chromebooks. Google has included the fix for this issue in the latest Chrome OS version, Chrome OS 72.0.3626.117, and AIR is able to announce full support of this version with online testing as no other compatibility issues have been discovered. Many, if not most, Chrome OS devices should already be running on OS 72.0.3626.117, as it became available on Google’s stable channel on Wednesday, February 20, 2019. 
     
    As communicated in the Technology Setup for Online Testing Quick Guide and Additional Configurations and Troubleshooting Guide for Chrome OS resources, AIR recommends disabling Chrome OS auto-updates or limiting updates to a specific version used successfully before summative testing begins.
