Step 3: Complete a Sample Test
This is a quick and easy way to verify your technology is properly configured. Avant Sample Tests use the same technologies as the actual test so you will experience any technical issues in the Sample Test before registering for the actual test. Please make sure you can record your voice and listen back to your recording. If no button to listen back to your recording appears this means no recording was captured:

MONTHLY SCHEDULED SYSTEM UPDATES
Avant will be conducting scheduled maintenance on our systems the first Thursday of every month from 9:00-11:00 PM PDT. During this time both testing and reporting will be unavailable. However, our company website and email systems will be fully functional during this window. An alert will be posted on login pages a week prior to the maintenance. Students should avoid scheduling their testing around this time.
If you have any questions or concerns, your school/organization can help answer your questions, and the Avant Support Team is also here to help. Avant Support Team firstname.lastname@example.org 888-713-7887
