SofTest Basic Lab Setup

June 20, 2016 Rex McWilliams

Please ensure that your Lab machines meet our Minimum System Requirements to run SofTest.

In situations where SofTest is being configured in a lab environment without the use of Lab Management, the setup process is fairly simple. By ensuring that SofTest is set up and registered for a Lab Environment, we can confirm that student data will not be saved on the application between uses to help ensure security of the exam.

Before beginning the install process for SofTest, ensure that you have an Exam Taker Account set up as a Lab User. This will be the account used to register SofTest. For more information on setting up Exam Taker account, please review the Exam Taker Management guide.

  1. Once an Exam Taker has been set as a Lab User, install SofTest in your lab environment. To do this, launch the STWIN11.exe file, and follow the on-screen instructions of the installation package. The Customer Success Specialist of your institution can provide you a direct link to this installation file. Note, if you already have SofTest installed on the computer, you will need to unregister it. This is accomplished by holding the key-combination CTRL+F7 at the SofTest home screen.
  2. Now, SofTest needs to be registered with a Lab Exam Taker account. To accomplish this, launch SofTest. Enter your Institution ID, followed by the ID and password of this ET into the the text fields. This will instruct SofTest to operate in lab-machine mode.

3. At this point, the Exam Taker license agreement needs to be read and accepted. SofTest is now registered and installed. Students can begin using the computer lab to take exams using SofTest.
