Downloading and Installing Exam Software

Use the guide below to locate the exam(s) you will be delivering and install the appropriate exam delivery method(s) on all computers that will be used for testing.

Reminder: Verify that your center meets all Technical Requirements before installing.

Console 8 Exams

Console 8 is the only delivery system for the administration of the 2013 Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exams, and any subsequent versions yet to be released. It uses live-in-the-application technology to deliver a performance-based experience. During an exam, Console 8 launches the corresponding Microsoft Office application, and then the Test Candidate will demonstrate their skills within the actual application during the exam. Each computer that will be used for testing must have Console 8 and the full version of the corresponding Microsoft Office Suite installed.

Note: Console 8 supports the delivery of the MOS 2013, MOS 2010, MTA, MCE, ACP, ACA, as well as the IC3 exams (availability of individual program versions/suites may vary).

Certiport Online Exams for Windows

The Certiport Online Exam delivery system for Windows is used to deliver exams consisting of basic exam questions and/or performance-demonstrated tasks within a simulation of an application. Because the applications are simulated within this delivery engine, there is no need to have any actual software installed to run an exam. For example, you do not need to have Adobe Photoshop installed on testing computers to deliver an Adobe Photoshop exam.
