Upcoming Support Changes

Pearson aligns support requirements with changing technologies. When updates are released, Pearson first tests a beta version and reports bugs to developers. When the final version is publicly released, Pearson also tests this version to ensure TestNav compatibility before supporting it. When hardware or software deprecates, Pearson drops support for it.

Testing in Progress

  • Chrome OS 66
  • iOS 11.4
  • iPad 6th generation
 TestNav App Updates

Note that customers may take TestNav releases at varying times, depending on testing sessions.

(warning) Some customers successfully use virtualization/thin clients; however, Pearson does not provide support for these technologies. Those using these technologies are responsible for their virtualized environment security and performance. Prior to high-stakes testing, customers should compare virtual environment performance to that of a non-virtual environment.
