Solution: Here are several steps that can be taken to correct this issue.

  • Try reloading the page.

  • Maximize your browser window, or try a different browser.

  • Adjust your screen resolution to 1200 x 800 or higher (for desktops and laptops)

  • Make sure your zoom is set to 100%. You may need to use cntrl + plus sign, or cntrl + minus sign, adjust the zoom.

Message saying no tests available:

Issue: Student logs in to take a screener and sees a message the "No Tests are Available"

Solution: There are a couple of things that can be done:

  • 1. Student refreshes browser on screen that says 'no more tests'

  • 3. Student closes and reopens browser completely to retry.
