Tip: Run a TAO System Check and Validation Test on all examinee computers before the test session to ensure they can properly access and deliver the tests. To save time, you may want to run the Validation Test before the TAO System Check because if you are successful in launching a sample mini test, it won't be necessary for you to run the TAO System Check.
