Downloading a test to take later in SecureClient

Tests can be downloaded to SecureClient from the Enter Keycode screen to allow the test to be taken offline. This is usually done ahead of a test session either by the candidate or an examiner. Finished tests are uploaded to Surpass from SecureClient once internet connection is restored.

TIP: It is good practice to download tests to SecureClient even if the test is being taken online to mitigate any potential internet connectivity issues.

To download multiple tests to multiple devices, use the SecureClient Admin Console. For more information, read About the SecureClient Admin Console.
