The additional practice tests can only be accessed from the Nextera Secure Browser, which requires the student testing device to have the Nextera Secure Browser installed and tested before the student can access the practice test. You can locate browser and Operating System specific downloads on the “Downloads” page under the Help tab on the banner toolbar in Nextera Admin.
