ATI TEAS at Institution QuickStart Guide

Step-by-step instructions to get started with your remote proctored ATI TEAS exam via an institution or testing center.

STEP 1 – Check technical requirements prior to registering for the TEAS

ATI does not consider technical issues on the tester’s computer or Internet to be a valid reason for a refund or free reschedule exception. Please make sure all technical requirements are met before the start time of the assessment and use the Dry-Run assessment if necessary to test your system.

You must:

  • You must use the Google Chrome™ browser for your remote TEAS exam (Download). If you already have Google Chrome, make sure you have the most recent version.
  • Test on a PC or a Mac (a phone or tablet cannot be used):
  • PC – Windows 10 or later, minimum resolution 1024 x 600
  • Mac – Mac OS® X 10.11 or later, minimum resolution 1024 x 600
  • Enable JavaScript and cookies within your Google Chrome browser.
  • Disable your popup blocker within your Google Chrome browser.
  • Mac Users: Enable Screen Sharing for the Google Chrome browser.
  • Have a microphone – either internal or external.
  • Have a webcam (minimum resolution 320x240 VGA) – either internal or external.
  • Ensure that your internet speed is at least 0.5 - 1 Mbps. You can test your internet speed using speedtest.net.

A full list of ATI's technical requirements is available at https://www.atitesting.com/technical-requirements.

STEP 2 – Install the Proctorio Chrome Extension prior to test day

ATI remote testing requires that the user install the Proctorio Chrome Extension, which can be downloaded either before attempting to access an assessment (recommended) or at the time of the assessment. Note: You must use the Google Chrome browser to complete this process.

STEP 3 – TEAS TEST DAY: Perform the pre-test checklist prior to exam start time

You must start your exam at the stated start time. We recommend you start this process 30 minutes prior to the start of your TEAS exam. If you do not start the exam within 30 minutes of the official start time, you will not be able to test. Exams will not be refunded or rescheduled due to late arrival.

  • Make sure you are using a fully charged or plugged-in laptop or desktop computer with a webcam and microphone.
  • Install Google Chrome and the Google Chrome Extension on your device. You will not be able to take the remote version of the ATI TEAS Exam with any other browser.
  • Have a government-issued photo ID card available.
  • Find a well-lit space and be ready for a room scan prior to the assessment. Check out our How to set up your Room for a Remote Exam for more tips
  • Position your webcam from your shoulders up so that your face is fully visible.
  • Prepare one piece of blank paper to be used during the exam. Please destroy the paper upon completion.
  • Ensure that your internet speed is at least 0.5 - 1 Mbps. You can test your internet speed using speedtest.net.

Non-compliance with the above may invalidate your test attempt.
