  • New AIR Secure Browser for Mac OS X

    AIR will release a new Secure Browser on November 26, 2018, for desktop and laptop devices running on Mac OS X. Installation of this new browser will be required to administer tests to students using devices running on Mac OS X 10.13 and 10.14. This requirement eliminates recently discovered security risks while testing on Mac OS X 10.13 and 10.14. Devices running on the other supported Mac OS X versions (available on the Indiana Assessment Portal’s Secure Browsers page) will not need to take any action as the security risks are limited to Mac OS X 10.13 and 10.14. If a device needs to be updated with the new Mac OS X secure browser, the previous Mac Secure Browser must first be uninstalled. The instructions for doing so are in the Additional Configurations and Troubleshooting Guide for Mac, available on the Assessment Portal’s Technology Resources page. After that step is complete, follow the short Installing Secure Browser for Mac OS X instructions on the Secure Browsers page to guide installation of the new Mac OS X Secure Browser. AIR will post an announcement on the Assessment Portal once the new Mac OS X Secure Browser is available for download on November 26, 2018.
