Availability of Secure Browsers
The Secure Browsers for the 2018-2019 school year are now available.
About Supported Browsers
The operating system versions listed in the above table are the only ones officially supported.
These operating systems are supported when software is directly installed on machines and devices. Some types of network installation are supported.
For information about network installation and related requirements, refer to the Technical Specifications Manual for Online Testing.
Warning: Support for New Desktop Operating Systems
If a new desktop operating system becomes available after the Secure Browsers for this year are released and it is not listed in the above table, it will not be supported. Please do not upgrade to new operating systems on computers that will be used to administer online assessments.
Warning: Support for Updated Mobile Operating Systems
AIR recommends turning off or delaying automatic updates of the iOS, Android, and Chrome operating systems. Doing so will allow AIR to review changes to these systems and address any that pose a potential risk to student testing. Announcements will be posted to the portal when a new mobile OS can be used for testing.
