Dates and Deadlines for the PPAT® Assessment

Review the PPAT® submission window dates and deadlines to determine which submission window fits your schedule and choose your window carefully. If you select a submission window and later decide to change to another window, you will be subject to a $30 reschedule fee. If you have begun to enter task responses or upload artifacts and change your submission window, you will lose that information.

Task Deadlines

Each of the four tasks is due by a specific date and time.

All tasks and artifacts must be submitted within the same submission window.

Tasks are accessible and submitted in a specified order. As you submit a task, you will be able to access the next task.

  • Task 1 must be submitted first
  • Tasks 2 and 3 must be submitted (in any order) after Task 1 but before Task 4
  • Task 4 must be submitted last

If you miss the Task 1 deadline, you will not be permitted to complete the assessment. You will not receive a score report. You will not be eligible for resubmission, your registration will be cancelled and you will have to register for a future submission window.

If you miss the task 2, 3 or 4 deadline, you will receive a score of zero for the task(s) not submitted.

If you miss deadlines, you are not eligible for fee refunds.

Late Submission Service

Candidates who do not submit tasks by the original submission window task deadline (found above) may request an extension. The fee for this service is $50 per task. To register and pay for this service, candidates must contact ETS customer service no later than 2 p.m. ET two days after the original submission window task deadline. The extension deadline to submit tasks is 11:59 p.m. ET on the third day after the original submission window task deadline. There are no additional extensions after that deadline and there are no refunds to candidates who register for this service and do not submit tasks. Note: This service is not available for the resubmission window.

Resubmitting a Task

During the resubmission window, you may be eligible to register to resubmit responses to Tasks 2, 3 and/or 4 if you were not able to obtain the passing score for the assessment. For more information about resubmissions, see Resubmitting Your Tasks.
