When Do Schools Get My Scores?
Most scores are released to schools approximately two weeks after we receive the completed test materials in our offices. Be sure to test early enough in the year so that schools will receive your scores by their application deadlines. During the busiest testing months (November-January), it is likely that scoring will require the full two weeks. At other times, scores may be released earlier. If a school is designated as a score recipient before scores are released, the school will receive scores before they are available to the student.
When Do I Get My Scores?
Scores are released to students online (and by mail or FedEx for an additional fee) within two weeks of our receipt of the completed test materials. Allow an additional week for delivery of paper score reports by U.S. first class mail (delivery time varies). Scores are not released by phone. During the busiest testing months (November-January), it is likely that scoring will require the full two weeks. At other times, scores may be released earlier. Please do not contact us before this time to inquire as to score status.

NOTE: Not available for the Elementary Level SSAT.
Hand Scoring - $60
If you are concerned about the accuracy of the computerized scoring or the possibility of student mis-bubbling, you may request that the answer sheet be reviewed by hand. This service can be ordered online through the parent's SSAT account. Please note that it has been our experience that few, if any, hand scores result in a score change.
The SSAT is an undisclosed test; consequently, hand scoring service will not provide you with the actual questions or answers from the test. However, in the event that scores change as a result of hand scoring, revised scores will be uploaded to your account and all requested score recipients. If no change occurs, we will send a letter to that effect. Please allow up to one month for hand scoring results. Tests may only be hand scored within the academic testing year in which they were taken (August 1 - July 31).
Rescore (Middle and Upper Level SSATs) - $25
If your child took the wrong level Middle or Upper Level SSAT (was scored at the wrong grade), you may ask to have the test re-scored to more accurately reflect your child's abilities. To request a rescore to a different grade level, please order online through the parent SSAT account. Please allow up to two weeks for rescoring. Tests may only be rescored within the academic testing year in which they were taken (August 1 - July 31).
Please note: Once a rescore has been ordered, the original (invalid) score report will be deleted. Rescoring can be performed on Middle Level tests for grades 5-7 only, and on Upper Level for grades 8-11 only. Tests will not be rescored between grade levels 7 and 8. The Elementary Level test cannot be rescored.
