Warning

If you only perform the configuration step, test content is not yet downloaded and precached. Precaching is not performed automatically, but something you must perform manually.

 

Precache Content

Perform this task after you create all test sessions, but before the first test session has been started. This will ensure that you cache all of the content needed. This feature requires the use of a Java applet, so the computer from which you perform the action must have Java installed and you must allow the Java applet to run in your browser in order for this to work. 

From Testing > Sessions, search to find test session(s) set up to use proctor caching or click the down arrow next to the Search button to reveal and select the option to show all results. Select the session(s) you want to edit.
