Understand App Check with Installable TestNav


Wireless Testing Best Practices

If you're testing wirelessly, use the following best practices:

  • Use the most wireless access points (WAPs) possible.
  • Limit the number of computers per WAP.
  • Limit distance and obstructions between devices and the WAPs.
  • Run an infrastructure trial to test capacity and performance.

Understand App Check

You can find App Check on the TestNav Sign In page. App Check confirms that the device or computer can connect to TestNav and that it is configured to start TestNav in kiosk mode. An optional configuration identifier may be entered to validate additional TestNav configurations from the assessment management system.

See the Run App Check section on each setup page for basic step-by step instruction.

Note

App Check does not check screen size or resolution. If a student attempts to sign in to a test on a device that does not meet support minimums, TestNav may display an error. See TestNav System Requirements for support minimums.
