Below are instructions for the installation and use of the GMETRIX software.
First, make sure your Adobe applications are currently closed.
Then you will need to download the GMETRIX SMS from this site. Select the appropriate version for your computer.
- Download the latest version of the GMetrix SMS at www.gmetrix.net/download.
- Open or Run the GMetrix Installer.
- Follow the on-screen prompts in the GMetrix Setup Wizard to complete the installation process. Once completed, you can launch the application. (When it asks you to Choose Install Type, Typical is recommended for most users.)
- Download the latest version of the GMetrix SMSe client at www.gmetrix.net/download.
- The .dmg file will show up in your downloads folder. Open it and follow the prompts to drag the Gmetrix SMSe icon to your Applications folder.
- From there, you can keep it in your Dock or open it from the Applications folder.
Each student will need their own GMetrix account for testing. There are several ways to go about this process, but in general, the easiest is to have your students set up their own account by following these steps.
- Open the newly installed GMetrix SMS application. Select/Click the Google sign-on icon to login with your school google account!
- I don’t believe it should ask you for more information unless you chose to make your own account rather than google. If it asks for login info that is your choice to do or go back and use google
- Once you’ve logged in to the GMetrix SMS application you click on the Light Blue Key in the left navigation bar.
- You will now need to send Mr. Coulson a Remind message requesting the Access Code.
- Type or paste your Access Code into the Redeem an access code field and press Enter or click Redeem a Code.
You should now be able to choose your software and see the available practice exams that are available to you.
Note: that you will need to start and save or submit a test to associate the Access Code to your account. However, once you have done so you can access your tests from any computer that has GMetrix SMS installed.
