ACCESSING Virtual and On-Demand Sessions:  READ DETAILS

  1. You will be sent information from SSWAA on how to access the live virtual sessions (see above “Important Updates”.
  2. You will also be sent information from SSWAA on how to access on-demand sessions.
  3. You can access any on-demand session between April 5  and May 31, 2021.
  4. You are required to watch the full session and complete a post-session quiz. (Pay attention, the questions can be tricky.)
  5. NEW YORK ATTENDEES:  After passing the quiz, you will  exit the session and complete the New York Evaluation (See Details Below.)    You DO NOT have to complete SSWAA’s Evaluations.
  6. WHY?  The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has very specific requirements in order to provide NY approved CEUs.  Part of those requirements include the need for you to evaluate each sessions’ Learning Objectives.  As a result individualized evaluations must be set up for each session and SSWAA’s generic evaluations do not count.    That is why instructions for NY attendees are to stop after passing the “quiz” and do the NYSSSWA evaluations and NOT the SSWAA evaluations. No harm if you do, but you STILL must complete the NYSSSWA evaluation.
  7. Deadline to complete Sessions & NYSSSWA Evaluations is May 31, 2021


  1. Complete New York’s Evaluations:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SSWAA2021
  2. All evaluations are linked in order, for easier completion.  When finished with a session, you can hit the blue “Next” which will take you to the next session.
  3. You also will be given an option to link to the entire list to select a session.
  4. You should be able to complete your evaluations as you go.  Just DO NOT CLICK ‘DONE‘   until you are completely finished with all sessions or the system won’t let you back in.   If that happens, you will need to access from a different browser/computer and complete those sessions you have not finished.  You do not have to start over.  I can combine your responses on the back end. 
  5. If you did not attend a session, you can select “N/A”
  6. DEADLINE:   The deadline to watch all sessions and complete your evaluations is May 31, 2021  
  7. We will need to verify your attendance with information from SSWAA regarding people’s log in/log off that will be available after June 7, 2021   
  8. Nothing is automatic.   The release of CEUs is a manual process so please allow time for processing all required components.
  9. Once all required components have been verified including payment, workshops will be individually selected and certificates will be released  for those who have completed all of their sessions and evaluations.
  10. You will be able to access and print via your 123Signup account.  Be sure to use the same email address you used to register with.    See:  How to Print Your CEU Certificate  
  11. Deadline to complete Evaluations is May 31, 2021.
