The answers are saved in your browser’s cookies and can be retrieved by Chi Tester if the internet doesn’t come back. Once you finish, review the test to see if your answers were saved.

  1. 19.  What are the differences between the testing centers?

Most of the testing centers are the same except for the Marriot Health Center. They allow laptops to be used during tests and their backpack cubbies are in the testing room. If you want to give your students special instructions, then the Marriot Health Center would be the place to ask first.

  1. 21.  What is a learning outcome standard?

Learning outcome standards help you document a student’s progression in a subject through the entire semester. For example: You are a Math teacher and you have set learning outcomes for division and subtraction. After each test, you can see the number of correct and missed questions for each student and it’ll track their progression through each additional test. At the end of the semester you’ll have a sheet showing their improvements or their struggles in those areas.


  1. 22.  What’s the difference between learning outcomes and categories?

Learning Outcomes track your student’s progress in a subject throughout the semester. Categories will only track your student’s progress in one test. Learning Outcomes is handy if you are covering the same topics a good part of the semester, and categories are good to see if your student’s understood a certain topic that probably won’t be touched on again.


  1. 23.  How do I get my username and password?

Your information was emailed to you. If you don’t have the email please call Chi Tester Support: (801) 626-6477 so we can verify your email is correct and resend your information.


  1. 24.  My student can’t take their test.
  2. Have your student verify that they requested the test. If they haven’t then they need to do that first before taking the test.
  1. Make sure the test name is EXACTLY the same as the test that the student is trying to take.
  1. Switch browser to either Firefox or Google Chrome and try again.
  1. If there’s a note saying the test is unavailable, then the student must contact their instructor to resolve the issue.
  1. If there’s no note then call Chi Tester Support: (801) 626-6477 and we will look into it.

  1. 25.  I don’t see my student’s test.

If your student requested the test but you don’t see it in your proctor page, then have them request the test again. Make sure they are requesting the correct test and that you know the exact name. Some tests are named similar to others and can be confusing. If you still don’t receive a password please call Chi Tester Support: (801) 626-6477.

  1. 26.  My student lost network connection during their test.

Do NOT close the browser. The error message’s instructions will request the student continue the test. Have them review it if possible to see if their answers were saved. If cookies are enabled, Chi Tester can retrieve the answers. If the answers are not saved then the student needs to call their instructor. The instructor will either allow them to retake the test or call Chi Tester for more information.

  1. 27.  How do I become a proctor?

A student must request you to be a proctor. If you received a “Proctor Approval/Agreement” email, then click the “proctor approval web page” link to sign up.

  1. 28.  I got an email from Weber about being a proctor. How do I opt out of this?

Opting out is easy. Scroll to the bottom of the email and there are two options: you can either “deny this request” to opt out of proctoring that particular student or you can “proactively deny any future requests” to not receive any more requests from Weber students.

  1. 29.  My username and password do not work.

If you are copying and pasting from the email, then try to manual type in the username and password. Sometimes a blank space will be highlighted will copying and that will mess up the login. Also, some characters look very similar like a lowercase “l” and the number “1”. If you are sure the characters are correct and it’s still not working then please call Chi Tester Support: (801) 626-6477.

  1. 30.  We can’t find the student’s test.

If searching under the student’s name yields no results, then try to search under the instructor’s name. Sometimes instructors will associate the test to just one student, so it won’t show up in the normal search. If you can’t find it, then please call Chi Tester Support: (801) 626-6477.


  1. 31.  Is the server down?

Please call Chi Tester Support: (801) 626-6477 to check if the server is down. If it is, wait 5-10 minutes for it to come back.
