Important Notes

  • ALL test takers, regardless of registration method, will access their score reports online. Test takers may also print admission tickets (except test takers requesting special accommodations), change personal information, change test center or test date, cancel a test registration and order additional score reports online.
  • Review The School Leadership Series Information Bulletin concerning test administration, fee payment and score reporting before you register.
  • Paper-delivered tests are offered on fixed dates throughout the testing year. See test dates to learn when the paper-delivered tests will be administered and get information on registration deadlines and score reporting dates. Computer-delivered tests are offered during specific testing windows during the year and are scheduled by appointment based on availability. You must register at least three days prior to your test date.
  • Occasionally, a test center's street address or reporting location may be changed just prior to the test date. To obtain the most recent and accurate reporting address information, sign in to your account three days prior to the test to verify the test center's reporting location and reprint your admission ticket. Do not wait until the morning of the test to print your ticket.
  • Need testing accommodations? (Please note, online registration is not available for test takers requesting accommodations because of the review process required to grant accommodations.) See:

Test Retake Policy

Computer-delivered Tests

Tests that are offered continuously may be taken once every 21 days, not including your initial test date. Tests that are offered during testing windows may be taken once per testing window. This applies even if you canceled your scores on a test taken previously. If you violate this restriction, the scores from your retest will not be reported and your test fees will not be refunded.

Paper-delivered Tests

ETS does not limit the number of times you can retake a paper-delivered test; however, some states, associations, and institutions may limit the number of times you can retest. Contact your state or licensing agency to confirm their retest policy.
