pearsonaccess accounts
PearsonAccess Accounts
  • All STCs and SACs should now have a PearsonAccess account for the LIVE site
    • Review the Instructions for accessing PearsonAccess(see File Share in webinar) for more information, including help with resetting account information
  • Accounts for PearsonAccessTRAINING site are forthcoming
    • We anticipate that all STCs and SACs will have accounts prior to the 10/3 PearsonAccess training
administrative network activities
Administrative Network Activities

Configure Network Permissions (firewall, content/spam filters)

Test Wireless Connection

Use System Check to verify Network User Capacity and Testing Volume for every testing environment (desktop computer lab, wireless devices lab, etc.)

proctor caching
Proctor Caching
  • Proctor Caching is Pearson-supplied software that is used in conjunction with TestNav to reduce bandwidth requirements and accelerate the delivery of test content.
  • Allows you to pre-cache test content to your local network before a test.
  • Reduces the burden on your ISP by eliminating redundancy in requests for test content.
  • Stores an encrypted local copy of all pre-cached tests
proctor caching continued
Proctor Caching (continued)

Identify a Proctor Caching machine that meets all requirements

Download/Install Proctor Caching software

Use System Check (add Proctor Caching device) to verify Network User Capacity and Testing Volume for every testing environment (desktop computer lab, wireless devices lab, etc.)

testing device readiness
Testing Device Readiness
  • Ensure all testing devices meet minimum requirements
  • Environment Security
    • Ensure students have permissions to SAVE the student response files (SRFs) to the designated directories
    • Ensure any applications on testing devices, which may take over the computer and cause TestNav to close, are disabled
  • Device Verification
    • Complete the SystemCheck for TestNav
    • Ensure all device operating systems meet the minimum requirements
testnav configuration
TestNav Configuration
  • Configure Proctor Caching in PearsonAccess
  • Verify Environment in PearsonAccess Training Center (10/3 training)
    • Configure TestNav in Training Center
    • Create Test Session in Training center
    • Pre-cache ePAT
    • Execute ePAT and verify SRFs are saved to the appropriate save locations
test administration
Test Administration
  • Troubleshooting Process during Testing
    • Review Error Message on screen
    • Check TestNav8 User Guide for message screen shot, explanation of error, and action steps to resolve the error
  • If unable to resolve, contact Pearson directly
system check
System Check

Tool for validating that TestNav software could run on their computers.

Support can also use System Check to validate the computer for any technical problems.

To gather realistic results System Check must be run from a student testing machine on the same day of week/time of day when you anticipate performing online testing.

infrastructure trial
Infrastructure Trial

Setup the test environment and have students complete the ePATS (practice tests) via the PearsonAccess Training Site

CSI PearsonAccess 10/3 Training will go over this process
