Instructions for logging into USA Test Prep

Account ID: buffalo77

Username: student Skyward ID

Password: password

Each of your classes will be listed if your teacher is using USA Test Prep along with the corresponding assignment(s). This means that when you log in, you could have assignments from your Biology class, Economics class, and/or Intensive Reading class as well as English 2 listed. Make sure you are choosing the right assignment for this class. Also, you can always practice for the FSA on your own. USA Test Prep has games and videos that you can access without having to have them assigned to you. 

 Other Log-in Instructions
