How does it work?
Q-interactive operates on a website called 'Central' at qiactive.com and an app called 'Assess', which can be downloaded from the Apple app store.
Central is a browser-based function for generating client profiles, building test batteries, creating assessment sessions, and sharing results.
Assess is an application that allows the examiner to administer a test via two iPads connected to each other via bluetooth.

Once you have been allocated a licence, you will receive a welcome email containing a link that takes you to qiactive.com, where you will be asked to create a unique password that will enable you to access both Central and Assess. Once your password is created, you can begin setting up your client profile, pair your iPads via bluetooth and administer your first test on the system. Use our Quickstart Guide and video to walk you through this simple process!
