The NAP–ICTL tests have been designed to be taken on desktop, laptop and tablet devices. Extensive testing has been carried out to ensure students who use tablets for the assessment have an equal experience to those using laptops or desktop computers. Tablets must, however, have an external keyboard connected.

To prevent student devices running out of power during the test, all devices should be connected to mains power for the duration of the assessment. 

Screen resolution

For desktops and laptops, the minimum screen resolution is 1280 width x 800 height. Desktops or laptops with lower resolution will introduce a scroll bar.

Tablets must have a minimum display of 10.2” with a minimum screen resolution of 2160 x 1620 and minimum viewport of 1080 x 810.
