Screen Color and Font Adjustment

These features, as noted in the interactive tutorial, may not be available for all assessments.

Font adjustment is available for some assessments using keyboard shortcuts:

  • Some assessments render content on the screen. Therefore, the common functions of a web browser are available to all candidates. To adjust content in a web browser, candidates can use these key combinations:
    • Ctrl + enlarges
    • Ctrl  minus  decreases
    • Ctrl 0 resets the view to 100%
  • This is common functionality for most if not all web browsers.
  • For font enlargement greater than 200%, you may wish to submit an Alternative Testing Arrangements Request form and supporting documentation in order to request screen magnification software.
