When setting up installable TestNav apps, you must complete certain setup processes to begin testing. The Checklist below includes those processes, as well as practices that Pearson strongly recommends to better prepare you for your testing session. Links to instructions for each testing device follow the Checklist.


  1. Download the app from the applicable store, and install.
  2. Ensure testing computers and devices are NOT set to run in full screen.
  3. Make a note of your Saved Response File (SRF) and Log File Locations in case an error occurs. You can find instructions for locating and downloading these files on each set up page in this section.
    1. On Android devices, Chromebooks, and iPads, the SRF default location varies by operating system and is NOT customizable. 
  4. If you are using ProctorCache, download and install it on your designated proctor caching computer(s).
  5. Run SystemCheck on Android devices, Chromebooks, and iPads. Links to installation instructions are provided below.
  6. Run an infrastructure trial using a practice test.
    1. Pearson strongly recommends running an infrastructure trial BEFORE the actual test day to verify the technology setup is complete and to familiarize teachers and students with the test. 
  7. During BOTH the infrastructure trial and the actual test, note which specific Android device, Chromebook, or iPad each student uses during each test. These devices have only one SRF location. 
    If an error occurs, you can locate files ONLY on that specific device.

The following pages contain detailed instructions for installing apps on each OS:

For step-by-step setup instructions, click the links below. You can also read further on this page for a detailed overview on installable TestNav, SystemCheck, and saved response file (SRF) and log files.

You download and install the TestNav app on testing devices, and select your test from a drop-down menu on the TestNav Home page. Testing devices lock down when the TestNav app launches to ensure that students cannot access any other apps or sites.
