(Get Prepared)


  • For optimal test performance, get a good night’s rest and eat a nutritious meal prior to taking the tests
  • Report to the test center early. It is a good idea to arrive at the test center at least 15 minutes before the scheduled testing time.
  • On your scheduled test day, remember to bring a photo ID with you to the testing center. Your ID will be checked before you will be allowed to take the tests. No ID, No Test, No Exceptions!
  • Do not bring a calculator. If you bring a watch with a built- in calculator, you will be asked to remove it during the test session.
  • Plan on spending approximately 3 hours at the test center on your scheduled test day.
  • Be sure to make arrangements for childcare ahead of time. Children will not be allowed at the test center.
  • Do not attempt to retake the test battery for six (6) months after your last test date. If you retest before the six (6) month period has elapsed, your score will not be valid and you will not be allowed to retest for another six (6) months. Please take this warning seriously. This is YOUR responsibility.
  • Make arrangements with the SEJATC before you report for testing if you will need special accommodations during the testing procedure.
