    Edexcel on screen testing .........help

    I have just gone into one of the secondary schools becasue the normal tech is off sick. I have had thrust ed in front of me the Edexcell Onscreen testing paperwork. I need to go to www.catglobal/edexcel to download the software and install it.

    I have downloaded it and installed it onto he server. I am now stuck. the administrator software..where do i put this?

    On a workstation that will be used to administer the tests or on the server as well?

    Where do i get the workstation software from.

    I think half the instructions have not been printed and At he moment it is as clear as mud.

    Has anybody done/doing this who could run me through it in idiots language?

    the administrator (stupid name for it tbh) software goes on the clients. during the installation you will need to point it to the exam data share on the server.
    Make sure this share is setup correctly else you'll be left scratching your head when the software keeps telling you the path is invalid.

    Can you use any share name for the folder share or does it have to be specific?

    I've just been given this software to sort out this year too. We're running CC3, this'll be fun.

    I was confused too, administrator = client! Duh.

    I've phoned Edexcel... the guy was very helpful. Time to install the SiteManager and then the fun of making the Client package. Wish me luck.
