(Student) Taking Exams on a Mobile Device

Sarah Smith -

Whether or not you can take a linear test on a mobile device is dependent on whether or not your instructor has opted to require Platinum Secure Testing for your test.


If Platinum Secure Testing is NOT required, then you will be able to take your linear test on a browser.  Exams cannot be taken on the App.  


If Platinum Secure Testing IS required, you will not be able to take the test using a mobile device.  If you have an iPad, you can download the Secure Testing App and take your test that way. 


To see if your instructor is requiring Platinum Secure Testing, you would want to check your Testing Instructions Page

  • When you click on the Take Test button from your student homepage inside EMSTesting or Platinum Tests or click on the Open button from your My.platinumed.com Dashboard.  You will be taken to the Testing Instructions page prior to entering your test.
  • Warning: Do not click Begin Test unless you are actually ready to begin your test at this time!
  • On this instructions page, if you see a section with the heading Secure Testing Environment Required this means you will have to download the additional software to the device you will be testing on or download the App for your iPad to begin taking your test.
