These ordered steps correspond to sections below or a related setup page. You can click each link to go directly to the corresponding processes.
During BOTH the infrastructure trial and the actual test, note which specific iPad each student uses during each test. The TestNav app saves SRFs to only one designated place on the testing device. If an error occurs, you can locate files only on that specific device.

As you perform the tasks below, if presented with a Confirm App Self Lockmessage, click or tap Yes to continue.To run App Check:
Click or tap the user drop-down menu, and select App Check.
On the App Check page:
You see green checkboxes for Kiosk Mode Readiness and connectivity to TestNav, if the system passes. If one of these fails, you will see a Fail message and must check your connection and settings before running App Check again.
If you have obtained a Configuration Identifier from your assessment management system:
Enter it in the Configuration Identifier field.
The configuration identifier allows TestNav to also check connection to ProctorCache computers.
Click Run App Check.
If ProctorCache connectivity fails, TestNav provides information for possible resolutions. Use this information to troubleshoot, and run App Check again.
The screenshots below are examples of possible scenarios when running App Check with a configuration identifier.
When you are ready to start a test:
Start the TestNav app.
The first time TestNav is launched, it displays the Enable Microphone Permission message.
Tap or click OK to grant microphone permission.
If the student taps or clicks Don't Allow, TestNav displays another prompt, shown below:
Tap or click Open Settings to enable the microphone.
Tap or click the appropriate icon for your test on the home page. If your test was selected before the test session, you see the Sign In page, rather than the home page.
If you need to select a different test, tap or click the user drop-down menu at the upper-right, and Choose a different customer.

Kiosk Mode Warnings
SFTP configuration is not supported by all assessment management systems. Consult your assessment management system user guide to determine whether the SFTP option is available.Prior to testing, complete the following steps:
Familiarize yourself with the default primary save location.
Configure the secondary save location through your assessment management system.
The same secondary save location applies to all computers and devices. You only need to set this configuration one time.
Communicate SRF and log file locations/procedures to proctors (see Primary Save Location below).
Note which student tests on which device during infrastructure trials and on test days.
On iPads, the SRF default primary save location is not customizable.
|You can find SRF and log files two ways on iPads - using Safari or a USB cable.|
Pearson strongly recommends running an infrastructure trial to verify the technology setup is complete and to familiarize teachers and students with the test.
Use your training site through your assessment management system to complete the trial before the actual test day.
You can learn more about SRF and log files on theSet up and Use TestNavpage.
