Early Warning System (EWS)

TestNav Common Error Codes

The Early Warning System (EWS) is integrated functionality that gives TestNav a high degree of fault tolerance and provides additional fail-safes in the event of unexpected network disruptions during online testing.

  • Minimal interruptions for students
  • Multiple physical file backups to safeguard against data loss
  • Notification Screens designed for Test Proctors
  • Early Warning System notifications often involve IT staff so an understanding is necessary to correct any issues during testing
