How should I set up my computer when doing an assessment on Wits-e?


When you use Wits-e for assessment, we recommend that you:

  • Use a supported web browser such as Firefox 4+, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer 7+.
  • Make sure you have a dependable internet connection; WIRED rather than wireless if at all possible.
  • DO NOT use your browser back and forward buttons. Always navigate within Wits-e.
  • If your test is displayed all on one page, use the "Save" button often! The "Save" button is always at the bottom of the page, so you may have to scroll down to find it.
  • For timed tests, remember that once you begin the test, the timer will continue to count down.  This is true if you lose internet connection, your browser crashes, or you simply exit and close your browser window.
  • Make sure that you only click on the "Begin Assessment" button ONCE when starting a test.
  • Make sure that you only click on the "Submit for Grading" button ONCE when submitting a test.
