SPECIAL NOTE FOR GRADES K-3:  Some students in this age/grade group may 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 may assist the student or fill in the bubble for them when they tell you the answer, 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 336-815-1142. We look forward to assisting you. 
• Administration can be completed in 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 allows the student to have extra time to complete the test or other such helps that do not substantially give him the answer, but allows him to overcome learning difficulties, etc.  Feel free to call us for more information or clarification.)
