test dates

Most computer-administered (CAT) tests are offered on a continuous basis. For these tests, you can determine specific test-date availability during the registration process. Other CAT tests are offered only during limited administration windows. Paper-based (PBT) tests are offered twice during the testing year; registration deadlines are strictly enforced and no exceptions are made

See the 2016-17 Limited-Administration CAT Testing Schedule (PDF) and the 2016-17 PBT Test Dates and Deadlines Schedule (PDF) for administration windows, registration periods and score reporting dates for the 2016-17 testing year.

Notes regarding PBT testing:

  • Monday PBT testing is on the Monday following the regular PBT administration.
  • All requests for Monday testing and testing accommodations should be submitted as early as possible. Because of space, staff and time constraints, there can be no assurance that requests received after the registration deadline can be accommodated.
