Supported Systems for Secure Testing
The following systems are supported for the Field Test and Practice Test.
AIR has worked with Google to develop a secure kiosk application for use with Chromebooks. You may add this application to both managed and non-managed Chromebook devices.
The correct secure browser must be installed on each computer that will be used for the Field Test. We strongly recommend that you install the secure browser on each individual computer. Please note: Any secure browsers used for the Cog Labs, Small Scale Trials, or Pilot Test should be uninstalled. Those versions will not connect to the Field Test environment.
Click the tabs below to access secure browsers and/or instructions for your operating system. The instructions on this page are for installation on individual machines.
For additional information and instructions, including installing a secure browser to machines over a network or installing the secure browser on a computer without administrator rights, refer to the Technical Specifications Manual for Online Testing document.
For information about installing and setting up the secure mobile browser on iPad and Android tablets, refer to the About the Secure Browsers for iPad and Android Tablets document.
