When a examinee starts a exam a computer and connectivity check is done. Below each check is described.
Note: if any check "fails" a user can continue to test but may have a less than optimal testing experience. The Sockets check is the only test that if failed will prevent a test from launching.
This check is done to see if a socket connection can be established.
This check is done to see if the ping is reliable (no dropped packets in 2 second test).
This check is done to see if a minimum download speed of 5 Mbps is possible.
This check is done to see if a minimum upload speed of 1 Mbps is possible.
