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. Run App Check on each device.
  3. Sign in to TestNav to verify that the app opens and that you can start a test.
  4. Set Up ProctorCache on your proctor caching computer(s).
  5. 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. 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.
