After you download TestNav and ProctorCache, complete the following:

These ordered steps correspond to sections below or a related setup page. You can click each link to go directly to the corresponding processes.

  1. Install TestNav using the instructions below.
  2. Turn off auto-correct and predictive text.
  3. Run App Check on each device.
  4. Sign in to TestNav to verify that the app opens and that you can start your a test.
  5. Set Up ProctorCache on your proctor caching computer(s).
  6. Review the Find and Set Up Response File Backups section to prepare yourself to find saved response files (SRF) and log files before the testing session. 
  7. Communicate SRF and log file locations and download information to test proctors.
  8. Run an infrastructure trial.
Note

During BOTH the infrastructure trial and the actual test, note which specific iPad each student uses during each test. The TestNav app saves SRFs to only one designated place on the testing device. If an error occurs, you can locate files only on that specific device.

Install TestNav

You can set up TestNav on an iPad for secure testing using one of the following methods:

titleApple Configurator via USB

To enable single app mode on iPad using Apple Configurator, first back up the device to retain any data or applications. Then, turn on Supervised mode for your organization to wipe the device.

You can restore the iPad after testing by placing the iPad in Supervised mode to put data and apps back on the device.

  1. Connect the iPad to a Mac OS X computer using a USB connection.
  2. On the Mac OS X computer, run Apple Configurator.
  3. On the Configurator's Prepare tab, turn on Supervision.
  4. Click the Prepare button at the bottom of the window.
  5. If prompted, enter the appropriate organization information and click Done.
  6. When you are asked to confirm that you want to apply the settings, click Apply.
  7. Wait while the Configurator completes the updates. When complete, click the Supervise tab.
  8. From the Lock to App drop-down menu, select TestNav.
  9. Click Apply at the bottom of the window.

To release a device from the single app mode:

  1. Confirm that the device is connected to the Mac OS X Server. 
  2. From the Lock to App drop-down menu, select None.
  3. Click Apply at the bottom of the window.

titleApple Profile Manager

Administrators can use Mobile Device Manager (MDM) to push a profile to devices to wirelessly turn on/off single app mode.

Profile Manager is Apple's MDM solution for Mac OS X. You can select the TestNav app from the Lock to App menu and push the profile to supervised devices.

Expand
titleAutonomous Single App Mode

You can also use autonomous single app mode (ASAM) to set up iPad for secure testing. ASAM is the recommended solution for LEAs to manage single app mode because it reduces administrator workload.

The ASAM feature requires BOTH a Supervised iPad (which you enable only from Apple Configurator) and an MDM (either Profile Manager or third-party). With ASAM, TestNav turns Guided Access on and off, as each testing scenario requires.

Administrators do not need to push profiles to devices to turn on/off single app mode. Instead administrators can grant TestNav the ability to turn on single app mode on-demand.
