Pre-assessment Checklist

Avoid common technical problems by following this check list the week before your first assessment:

  • Install Chrome or Firefox onto your PC or laptop. Our systems work best on these web browsers.
  • Read the guide for the assessments you will be taking so you know what to expect.
  • Make sure you have access to the software you will need, including Microsoft Word or another text editor. Remember that you have access to Office 365 or can download the software
  • Log into Blackboard on the device you will be using to check your access.
  • Update your alternative email so you can reset your password yourself if you need to.

We do not recommend trying to complete assessments using a tablet or phone. If you are in this situation, or experience problems with any of the above, please get in touch with the Catalyst Helpdesk  via email or live chat.
