The Exam Centre Service is a piece of software that needs to be installed on the server or network computer. It allows local distribution of the software, including communication between the centre and the Pearson server.

The video below includes installation of all four components.

The administrator dashboard is used to download, activate and assign tests to specific rooms and invigilators within a centre. It is typically installed on the exam officer’s computer.

This video includes installation of all four components.

The invigilator dashboard is used by the invigilator to start tests, monitor test progress, print learner login details and mark candidates as absent. It is installed on the invigilator’s PC in every room where exams take place.

This video includes installation of all four components.

The test player is the software that the candidate logs into to sit the test. When the Test Player is accessed, all other applications on the machine will be closed. The test player is designed to stop, and provide a warning, if a learner attempts to access any other applications on the machine during the test. It will also do this if any applications start running in the background, as it will detect the activity.

This video includes installation of all four components.

Invigilator and rooms should be created before you prepare assessments.

Assessments can be prepared on the administrator dashboard up to 96 hours before the scheduled start time of the test. Tests can not be started until four hours before the scheduled start time and are available to start for up to four hours after.

You can mark a learner as absent on the administrator dashboard.

You can mark a learner as absent in the invigilator dashboard.

The learners will need the order number and their learner number to be able to log in to the test player to access their test. These can be found in the attendance register or in the learner logins document that you can find on either the invigilator dashboard or administrator dashboard.

Learners should wait until instructed by the invigilator to start their test.
