Q-interactive Readiness Review & Technical Requirements


This review will help you make sure that your workplace systems can support the Q-interactive platform. The technical requirements for an optimal Q-interactive Experience are listed below. Note that all hardware is purchased separately from your Q-interactive licence.


Your Plans for Q-interactive


It may be useful for you to consider the following questions:

  • How did you come to the decision to use Q-interactive in your practice?
  • How do you plan on integrating Q-interactive into your practice?
  • What kind of training and support is currently available for staff when using technology?
  • Whose responsibility will it be within the practice to oversee and ensure all staff are trained in using Q-interactive?


Internet Access & Browser Requirements


  • Do you have sufficient internet access in the practice to set up assessments? Note: you don’t need internet access during the assessment, only when setting up and sending assessments to the iPad and back.
  • Does your practice support the minimum Browser requirements? See table below for a list of common browsers that are supported for Q-interactive Central.

Common browsers


Tablet Requirements:

Q-interactive requires the use of two Apple® iPads® that connect via Bluetooth. The table below lists which iPad models can be used for the practitioner and client devices. The iPads must be using iOS 9 or higher and have 16 GB of storage. You can connect to the internet using either Wi-Fi or cellular networks.

  • Does your practice support the minimum Practitioner and Client Device requirements?

Please note: We will be discontinuing our support for iPad 2, iPad 3, and iPad Mini in September 2018. You may use these devices until that time but should plan on replacing your older iPads this year. Visit https://www.apple.com/au/recycling/ to recycle your old devices and get credit towards new ones.

* “Supported” models will work with the Q-interactive application but may be more likely to experience performance issues. When purchasing new devices, “recommended” models will result in the best experience and have the longest life span.
** Not supported because the psychometric impacts of displaying stimuli on a larger or smaller screen are unknown.


Where to Buy

iPads can be purchased at any retail store or website that sells Apple products. 


Tablet Accessories

  • One stylus for writing notes and capturing examinee responses
  • Two anti-glare screen covers to minimize glare from interior lighting
  • Two durable cases to protect iPads
