Note: SecureClient is for Windows Laptop and PC delivery only. The software is also heavily reliant on User permissions so cannot be restricted by Network lockdown.

If you require an additional facility to prevent students accessing other applications while undertaking an assessment you must download and install this small application.

Instead of accessing the assessment through your browser the student clicks the SecureClient icon on the desktop and it takes them straight to the Keycode Login screen.

The learner may not access any other function on their PC until they have completed the assessment and exited correctly.

You must un-install any previous version(s) before you are able to install the next one.

Using SecureClient with USB or laptop delivery

If you would like to use Secureclient to deliver assessments offline using a USB or a laptop, please review our step by step guidance in the training materials under the heading 'Assessments'. (Please note that scheduling and upload for results requires online access.)

Proxy Issues Solution
One possible problem is that the proxy settings have not been entered in the proxy.xml file which is located in \SecureAssess Central - SecureClient SQA\configfiles. This file needs to be edited in the following way:

Change setting to true instead of false.

If your centre does not use proxy settings these should be left as 'false'.

If you continue to have problems please contact SOLAR Helpdesk.
