Starting a secure assessment

If you haven't done so already, Install Questionmark Secure for Windows.

Once Questionmark Secure has been installed, to start a secure assessment:

  1. After logging in to Questionmark, click Click here to launch your assessment.
  2. Download the .qmsb file that you're prompted to download, and then open it.
    • In Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer, you can open the .qmsb file without saving it.
  3. Click OK when the Questionmark Secure warning dialog pops up.

Questionmark Secure opens and the assessment begins.

Exiting a secure assessment

Questionmark Secure disables system keys like Ctrl+Alt+Del on Windows. This means that once Questionmark Secure is running, the only way that you can access other programs is to exit it or to turn off or reset your computer. 

Questionmark Secure takes over the computer to deliver secure content, and the only way to exit it is to press the Exit button on the toolbar (or one presented by the content). You should ensure that you save any work prior to running a secure assessment, as you will not be able to access it or return to it until Questionmark Secure exits. 

Your administrator may configure secure content so that there's no Exit button until the end of the secure content. In this case,  there's no way to exit the secure assessment other than turning off your computer.
