AIR and Google have identified a workaround key sequence that allows students to adjust the volume during testing without having to logout of the Chromebook and the testing session. This is incredibly useful if your school site has not purchased headsets or ear buds with inline volume control or if you're employing a BYOE (Bring Your Own Earbuds) tactic for SBAC testing.
Adjusting the Volume on Chromebooks While in a Kiosk Application
Press and hold the search key then press the volume up or volume down key.
- The search key is on the left side of the keyboard, above the Shift key.
- The volume keys are in the upper right corner of the keyboard, next to the power button.
Note: The volume up and volume down images may vary by Chromebook device so your mileage may vary, but the basic concept is the same.
