The current release version for both Firefox and Chrome at the time of our software's release are tested and supported. Newer release versions of Firefox and Chrome may work; however, Pearson does not recommend software or technology changes during an online test administration.

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 Pearson Access compatibility before supporting it. When hardware or software deprecates, Pearson drops support for it.
