New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to help incoming students make the transition to A-B Tech.  Included in NSO is the SmarterMeasure Online Readiness assessment.

Your SmarterMeasure score may prevent you from registering for 100% online classes without taking additional courses or participating in interventions, so be prepared to do your best on this assessment. Both NSO and SmarterMeasure are required before registering for Curriculum classes.
