Overview

Overview

SystemCheck validates testing workstations meet the minimum system requirements needed to run TestNav7

SystemCheck also provides the ability to run bandwidth speed checks to help plan for online testing capacity

SystemCheck estimates the number of concurrent testers that could be supported, at the time check is performed

Pearson Customer Support may also use SystemCheck results to assist customers in trouble shooting

Proctor caching introduction

Proctor Caching Introduction

  • TestNav Proctor Cache is Pearson supplied software that is used in conjunction with TestNav to reduce bandwidth requirements and accelerate the delivery of test content.

  • Proctor caching is not required, but is strongly recommended. Proctor caching:

    • allows you to pre-cache test content to your local network before a test;

    • reduces the burden on your internet service provider (ISP) by eliminating redundancy in request for test content; and

    • stores an encrypted local copy of all pre-cached tests.

Proctor caching installer

Proctor Caching Installer

  • Before SystemCheck can run a speed check on a proctor caching computer, the appropriate Proctor Cache software must be installed and running; installation generally takes less than 5 minutes.

    • Proctor Cache Installer for Mac

    • Proctor Cache Installer for PC

  • Download the appropriate proctor caching software and then:

Windows:

  • Save the file, and then double-click the executable file to open the installer screen.

  • Click the Runbutton to launch the installer, and then use the wizard to continue installing proctor caching.

Monitor proctor caching

Monitor Proctor Caching

  • To verify that TestNav Proctor Cache is running, enter the following address into your Web browser: http://xx.xx.xx.x:4480 (x characters represent numbers from your proctor caching computer IP address). If proctor cache is not running, an error screen will appear.

Network user capacity

Network User Capacity

  • Tests internet bandwidth between the workstation and Pearson’s servers

  • To gather realistic results, SystemCheck should be run from a student testing machine on the same day of week/time of day as when you anticipate performing online testing

  • Click Add Caching Computer to add your potential proctor caching machine for a local network bandwidth test
