3 3 SystemCheck validates testing workstations meet the minimum requirements needed to run TestNav 8. SystemCheck also provides the ability to run bandwidth speed checks to help plan for online testing capacity. PARCC Support may also use SystemCheck results to assist customers in trouble shooting. SystemCheck for TestNav Overview

4 iPads and Chromebooks SystemCheck will not run on iPads or Chromebooks App coming to launch TestNav on these devices 4

5 Accessing SystemCheck SystemCheck can be accessed at SystemCheck is Java based and may require that you run and accept an applet 5

6 6 Check Your System: Validates system requirements are met on testing workstations Provides steps to verify whether TestNav 8 can run on the workstation Testing Capacity: Bandwidth testing for Internet and Proctor Caching connections Volume estimates for capacity planning SystemCheck Functionality

7 Validates computer workstation to ensure that minimum requirements are met 7 Check Your System: System Requirements

8 Verifies that workstation can run TestNav 8 Check Your System: TestNav Verification

9 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 requests for test content; and stores an encrypted local copy of all pre-cached tests. 9 Proctor Caching Introduction Proctor Caching is Pearson- supplied software that is used in conjunction with TestNav to reduce bandwidth requirements and accelerate the delivery of test content. The Proctor Caching 8 installer and training will be available in early 2014.

11 Field test districts that want to begin evaluating networks prior to January can download the Proctor Caching 7 installer at Locate the appropriate proctor caching software and follow these steps: Windows: – Save the file, and then double-click the executable file to open the installer screen. – Click the Run button to launch the installer, and then use the wizard to continue installing proctor caching. Mac: – Save the file, then double-click the ZIP file, and then double-click the application to open the installer screen. – Click the Next button to launch the installer, and then use the wizard to continue installing proctor caching. 11 Proctor Caching 7 Installer

12 To verify that TestNav Proctor Cache is running, enter the following address into your Web browser: (x characters represent numbers from your proctor caching computer IP address). If proctor cache is not running, an error screen will appear. 12 Proctor Caching 7 Installer

13 Field test districts that install Proctor Caching 7 will need to install Proctor Caching 8 when it becomes available in January, After installing Proctor Caching 8, Testing Capacity speed checks should be performed again to validate bandwidth. 13 Proctor Caching 7 Installer

14 Internet bandwidth testing between the workstation and Pearsons 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 14 Testing Capacity

15 Add a name for the caching computer, the IP address, and port (4480) Can add multiple proctor caching computers by repeating these steps 15 Testing Capacity: Add Caching Computer

16 Edit the IP address and/or port 16 Testing Capacity: Edit Caching Computer

17 Select computer(s) to delete and then Delete Caching Computer 17 Testing Capacity: Delete Caching Computer

18 Click on Start to begin the test Onscreen information helps determine whether the connection was successful or not 18 Testing Capacity: Results

19 Based on the bandwidth test, SystemCheck can provide an estimated number of students that can test concurrently. 19 Testing Capacity: Results
