The Importance of the CPU

*Some versions of Windows 10 (N and KN) may not play videos correctly in all supported browsers.  For more information please refer to this article.


Other notes:

  • Some tablets and phones are able to watch videos and view fact sheets but quizzes and lab simulations are not supported for tablets and phones. There is no mobile app.
  • Chromebooks have not been tested for compatibility with our program and are not supported.
  • An external computer mouse is recommended.
  • TestOut lab simulations can be sensitive to screen size, so smaller screens may benefit from a reduced browser zoom setting.
  • TestOut is entirely online and lab simulations, quizzes, and videos are not available for download.
