All testing materials will be shipped to you via US Postal Service on Monday of the week before your scheduled testing.  However, all test materials must be returned by 14 days from the beginning of your selected Preferred Test Week.
   A $30 processing fee will be charged for all tests not returned by the return deadline, unless you have extenuating circumstances and call us to let us know and ask for an extension.

Step #3:
How did you hear about us?


     •Sales & shipping are only to USA citizens, US Military APO's, Missionaries from the US who are ministering in other lands and US citizens temporarily living abroad.  Additional shipping costs will be calculated on a case-by-case basis.
     •If you place an order from a foreign country, other than these few exceptions, your money will be refunded and a $15 processing fee will be charged. Thank you for understanding.


     •Through our account, we now offer discounted shipping via USPS First Class Mail, Media Mail, or Priority Mail, which includes tracking info sent to you in a separate email. The low price includes: 1.) shipping of all testing materials (Examiner's Manual, Student Book, and Answer Sheet) sent to your home/school, 2.) a pre-paid label for return shipping to us, and 3.) a one-page report with a detailed explanation page sent electronically via email (printed copies are available upon request).  There are no additional shipping costs.  We make it easy for you to return all testing materials to us by simply using the box or envelope and the return postage label we provide.  (If you require an alternative shipping method or faster service, please call us for availability and cost.)


     •4-6 hours, over 2-3 mornings or spread out over several days. (A "non-standard" administration of the test can be utilized for students with an IEP, special needs or other unique circumstances.  This provides the student with extra time to complete the test or other such helps - that do not substantially give him the answer - and allows him to overcome learning difficulties, etc.  Feel free to call us for more information or clarification.)
     •Refer to Examiner's Manual for testing students in Grades 4-12 together at the same time.  
     •SPECIAL NOTE FOR GRADES K-3:  Some students in this age/grade group have difficulty filling in the small bubbles on the separate answer sheet and/or correctly matching questions with the answer bubbles and grids.  Therefore, parents/teachers/test proctors are allowed to assist the student, as long as the answer is not revealed to the student.  If you have any questions regarding this matter, or any concerns about the test, please feel free to call us at 336-924-2494. We look forward to assisting you.
