WebAssess System Requirements

What does WebAssess do?

WebAssess® is a comprehensive, online testing system for administering assessments to applicants, employees, and students for employment, promotion, certification, and training and development purposes.

Acceptable Internet connections

WebAssess requires one of the following Internet connections and browsers to work properly:

  • ISDN
  • DSL
  • Cable
  • T-1/DS-1 or T-3/DS-3 Lines
  • Wired Ethernet
  • Broadband Wireless

Acceptable browsers with JavaScript enabled

  • Mozilla's Firefox® 3 or higher (Recommended)
  • Apple's Safari® 4 or higher
  • Google's Chrome® 9 or higher
  • Microsoft's Internet Explorer® 8 or higher (we do NOT support Internet Explorer® 6 or 7)

Suggestions for using WebAssess

  • WebAssess will not work properly with dial-up and satellite Internet connections because speeds on these types of connections are too slow.
  • We do not recommend that you use a wireless Internet connection unless the connection is stable.
  • Please keep in mind that wireless Internet connections at hotels and other public places are often unstable and/or very slow. If you are using a wireless connection in such places and WebAssess is not working properly, you are probably experiencing Internet connectivity problems.
  • WebAssess will not work on handheld computing devices (e.g., BlackBerry®, iPhone®, Android®).
