Computer Requirements for Online Exams

You will need to check that the computer on which the student will write the exam meets our technical requirements.

The computer must have an Internet connection and at least one of the following web browsers: Mozilla Firefox (version 3.0 or higher), Google Chrome (version 2.0 or higher), Safari (version 4.0 or higher), or Internet Explorer (version 7.0 or higher with Google Chrome Frame installed).

If you are unsure whether your browser meets these requirements, using the proposed examination computer, go to the MuchLearning System Requirements page. The system will evaluate your computer, and let you know if your browser will work.

Warning #1: The MuchLearning examination system will not work with Internet Explorer unless the Google Chrome Frame is installed, nor will it work with the web browser Opera.

Warning #2: Your computer cannot run system updates while the student is writing the exam.
