### Computer Assessments Installation instructions

The tests only work on Microsoft Windows with Internet Explorer 5 or above installed (though this doesn't need to be the default browser).

Before you start, you will need

- to make sure that Java is installed on your PC (see Settings, Control Panel)
- to make sure your Internet Explorer browser is Java enabled (most already are). To install Adobe's SVG viewer plug-in visit http://www.adobe.com/svg/
- to set your browser security to low (or medium) to allow the WebEQ applet to run ONCE ONLY. You might also need to see Settings, Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced - what happens then depends on your browser but it needs to be able to run applets and allow active content.
- to download and unzip each file (about 2Mb) to a folder in some convenient place on your hard drive.

To try out a test, double click on the executable file

XX.exe

where XX is an executable test - e.g. algebra 1.exe or presenter.exe

No answer files are written anywhere but a final screen shows you how you got on.

For institutional use, if you want answer files recorded, your licence of Perception will need to cover the student numbers you require, and you will need to request a copy of the test that records answer files. You can link the networked exe files to an ordinary web page or VLE such as Blackboard or Vista.
