Device configuration

Internet access Brightpath requires ongoing stable Internet access for both teachers and students.
Display resolution 1024 x 768
JavaScript JavaScript must be turned on for both teachers and students.
File uploads Teachers that wish to upload student performances to Brightpath will need file upload access enabled.
Input devices Brightpath can be used with a keyboard and mouse, and on touch-based devices such as iPads. However, to ensure student success, we recommend that students completing assessments within Brightpath use a physical keyboard.
