Opening HTML and URL source material

Select the source material in the item’s question stem to open the source material.

Source material automatically docks in a side-by-side view on screens with resolutions of 1920 x 1080 pixels or higher. Select Unpin to view the source material in a pop-up.

NOTE: If the Close Docked Source Material test profile setting is enabled, there is only one piece of source material and the candidate has a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels or higher, the source material icon and button are hidden because the source material remains open in a side-by-side view.

Select Close (or the Close Source Material button on HTML source material) to close the source material.

If you have a lower resolution screen, source material automatically opens in a pop-up. You can change the size of the pop-up and move the pop-up around the delivery window. Select a link to view the source material.

You can view source material in a side-by-side view, in a pop-up, or in a secure web page. Select Close (or the Close Source Material button on HTML source material) to close the source material.

NOTE: Changes to the colour scheme in the Preferences panel of the test driver only affects HTML source material from HTML subjects delivered using web delivery.
TIP: You can highlight text in HTML source material with the highlighter tool. For more information, read Using the highlighting tool in the test driver.
