Create an ARD workflow to prepare machines for testing
Save each script as a template.
Run this once per computer and then reboot.
01.Login student user
This will log in the student user from the login window.
02a.Safari “Run in unsafe mode” and allow pop-ups
This adds exceptions for the TestNav sites to run in Safari.
This adds exceptions for the TestNav sites to run in Chrome.
This creates Java exceptions using exception.sites. Only use this method if you cannot deploy a DeploymentRuleset.jar. Also be aware that I have had mixed results with this and it really hasn’t been working well since Pearson has updated TestNav.
04.Open System Check
This opens the System Check site so you can quickly see which computers it is or isn’t working on.
05.Click “Start” button
Click the start button on the System Check site so you don’t have to touch each computer manually.
06.Open sample test site
Open a sample test to verify functionality.
07.Enter sample credentials
Enter the credentials on all machines at one time.
08.Open real test site and bookmark it
Open the real test site and bookmark it in case students accidentally close it.
09.Make real test full-screen
- Signed DeploymentRuleset.jar
- pywin32 (via Choclatey: choco install pywin32 )
Save these as .py files or save them in your Desktop Management suite of choice.
As far as I have learned, this is not possible to script on Windows.
