Identifying Slow Performance Issues


Tech Compatibility Check

If you are experiencing slow performance while using Edulastic, there are a couple of IT factors that may be causing this.  Please consult with your tech lead to perform a tech compatibility check to verify that the issues below have been considered.


District Firewall

Please add Edulastic and other required URLs in the safe list in your firewall software (iBoss, McAfee, etc.)








Please NOTE: you must have the wild card when you add to the safelist e.g. Edulastic needs,, etc. to work properly.

HTTPS Scanning

Do you do any additional https scanning in the firewall software? If yes, can you unblock the above URLs from additional https scans?

Anti-virus / Device Level Security

If you have any device level security or anti-virus software (e.g. GoGuardian, McAfee, etc.), please add the above URLs in the safe list.

Browser Extensions

Some browser extensions are known to interfere with Edulastic app. We recommend removing unnecessary browser extensions from the browser. 


Some schools and districts have an Education specific consortium providing internet access. In such cases the ISP may have additional checks. Please ask them to unblock the above sites as well.

Compatibility and Speed Test

Lastly please run the compatibility check and speed test and let us know the results.
