Official score reports arrive by mail approximately 2–3 weeks after the test date. A copy is also sent to the designated score recipient. It includes the background information and educational information the test taker registered with, and the pass/no pass information for the designated recipient.

Test Takers: Contact your school district to verify the qualifying score. ETS doesn't establish the passing score for any state or district; each state or district sets its own qualifying score.

State Administrators and School Districts: Official score reports are now available through the new score delivery method — ETS Data Manager. Visit ETS® Client Services for Educator Licensure Account to create a new account.
