General Registration and Testing Process:
1.Review your candidate handbook prior to applying for an examination. Failure to follow the instructions can cause a delay of your examination registration.
2.Complete the exam registration and pay your testing fee. You must register with your full name as it appears on your current government-issued photo identification. In order to receive important messages about your testing session, be sure to provide a current telephone number and ensure that your email program will accept emails from the scantron.com domain.
3.Schedule a testing session. As early as 30 days prior to the testing window, Scantron will email you a Notice to Schedule (NTS), which will provide instructions for scheduling your testing session. This NTS will provide the link for the online scheduling system. Candidates must submit their scheduling request no later than two (2) days prior to their preferred test date during the testing window. However, we recommend that you schedule your exam as soon as possible. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis, so seating will become more limited near the middle and end of the testing window.
4.You will receive an email confirming the exact test location, date, and time. You must bring your printed confirmation email with you to the test site. If you do not receive this confirmation within 24 hours of scheduling your exam, call Scantron immediately. You must also bring photo identification with signature to the test site. Your first and last name on the confirmation notice must match the first and last name on your identification exactly. Acceptable forms of identification include a driver’s license, passport, and government-issued identification cards. Unacceptable forms of identification include gym memberships, warehouse memberships, school identification cards, credit cards, and any identification with no photo.
5.Plan to arrive at the testing center at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the test session. Those who arrive late for testing sessions may not be permitted to test.
6. Sit for the examination.
7.Wait for the examination results. See your candidate handbook for scoring information and policies. Examination Rules Scantron follows industry standard testing rules as outlined below.
