After you confirm that you have met minimum system requirements, use the instructions below to
To set up iPads in your testing environment, complete the following:
This checklist provides ordered steps that correspond to the sections on this page. You can click each link to go directly to the corresponding section.
- Download the app from the applicable store, and install TestNav using the instructions below.
- Turn off auto-correct and predictive text.
- Start TestNav to verify app opens and that you can start your test.
- Download ProctorCache and install it on your proctor caching computer(s).
- Run SystemCheck on each device.
- Review the Find Response File Backups section to prepare yourself to find saved response files (SRF) and log files before the testing session.
- Communicate SRF and log file locations and download information to test proctors.
- Run an infrastructure trial.
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.
You can set up TestNav on an iPad for secure testing using one of the following methods:
|title||Apple 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 mode for your organization to wipe the device.
You may restore the iPad after testing by placing the iPad in Supervised mode to put data and apps back on the device.
- Connect the iPad to a Mac OS X machine computer using a USB connection.
- On the Mac OS X machinecomputer, launch run Apple Configurator.
- On the Configurator's Prepare tab, turn on Supervision.
- Click the Prepare button at the bottom of the window.
- If prompted, enter the appropriate organization information and click Done.
- When you are asked to confirm that you want to apply the settings, click Apply.
- Wait while the Configurator completes the updates. When complete, click the Supervise tab.
- From the Lock to App drop-down menu, select TestNav.
- Click Apply at the bottom of the window.
To release a device from the single app mode, confirm
- Confirm that the device is connected to the Mac OS X Server. Then
- From the Lock to App drop-down menu, select None from the same menu
- Click Apply at the bottom of the window.
|title||Autonomous Single App Mode|
You can also use Autonomous Single App Mode autonomous single app mode (ASAM) mode (Lock to App) 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, but . Instead administrators can grant TestNav the ability to turn on Single App single app mode on-demand.
