Disconnects & Service Disruptions

If you experience a disruption of your Internet service while you are assessment, you should be able to re-enter the assessment you started. If you have begun a assessment, but not completed or scored it, you should still be able to have the assessment scored. Once you re-establish your connection to the Internet, reconnect to proveit.com and log in again with your assessment Session ID. Select the assessment that you had started prior to losing your Internet connection. In most cases, you should be able to re-enter the assessment at the point at which you lost connection without any loss of data or progress. However, due to the nature of some assessments whose questions must be answered in one sitting and in a sequential order (such as Typing or Data Entry assessments) you may have to begin your assessment again from the first question.

Fit Series

It is recommended that all Applicants use a 1024 x 768 resolution screen or higher for the best experience when taking a Fit Series evaluation.
