  2. Select Create Configurations. Enter the details of any proctor caching computers that you will use to precache tests.

  3. Click Test Connection to make sure the configuration works.

    Info

    If the connection is not successful:

    • Check that the proctor caching computer is set up properly and running on your network.
    • Check that you have entered the correct IP address and port. The default port is 4480.
    • Verify that the computer you are using to configure TestNav has Java installed and that the Java applet is allowed to run in your browser. (This feature requires the use of a Java applet. The computer from which you perform the action must have Java installed. You must allow the Java applet to run in your browser in order for you to test the configuration.)
  4. Click Create.

  5. Click CreateWhen creating test sessions, use the TestNav configuration.

Optionally, additional proctor caching computers can be added to the configuration. This is generally done in larger schools where testing may involve multiple grades and forms and larger numbers of concurrent testers. In cases like this, a second caching computer and the additional throughput it provides may be beneficial.

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.
